Students receive instruction on how they can choose a novel that best suits them. There are five important things to do when making your novel selection.
1.) Check the cover. Choose a novel title and theme that interests you. 2.) Read the "blurb" on the back to see if the story interests you. 3.) Pick a couple of random pages and see if the text is too hard, too easy or just right. 1 or less challenging words - means that the reading level is too easy 2 to 4 challenging words - means that the reading level is just right. 5 or more challenging words - means the reading level is too difficult
4.) If you're still on track and the novel is working for you test, drive it. Read it. 5.) If the book holds your attention, then it's just right for you. NOTE:If after a chapter or two you're loosing interest in your novel contact Mr. Revington as soon as possible to have a conference. Novel Study is not just a reading assignment, it's a month long study of language, storyline, character, setting and word development. You'll want to really be into it!
