Re-Imagining the Novel Study (EduGains Literacy)

April 19, 2017 at 1:00 pm Leave a comment

From Edugains Literacy: 

Book project 2.0 is a series of three videos in which students are involved in an independent novel study. Students independently read three books of their choice from a collection of titles related to a common theme. Teacher-librarian Michele Shapiera created this learning for students to help them engage in and enjoy reading literary texts.

Book Project 2.1 builds off the experience of Book Project 2.0 by using similar teaching. In this video, each student selects a novel of their choice from a teacher-created-collection of titles. As students read their novels, they annotate their thinking related to an inquiry question related to the idea of labels, and engage in conferencing with the teacher about ideas related to their novels and the answers they are discovering to the inquiry question.

Book Project 2.0 and Book Project 2.1:Re-imaging the Novel Study shows how inquiry, annotation and choice were key aspects as part of guiding students to think deeply about ideas related to their novel study. The resource includes a series of videos and a facilitator’s guide.
