Fun Ideas to Teach a Novel {Part 3}

Thursday, January 30, 2014

For the last two days I have been talking about how to teach a novel to your homeschool teens.  You can find these posts here and here.  Today I am offering up some fun ideas on how to teach a novel. We tend to do discussion with the novels we analyze, but there are a plethora of other activities that can be done.

While simplistic, I love this above graphic for processing the plot line of a novel.  You can get it down to the bare bones which will help students see the big picture of the story.

Creating a character's cell phone is a cute idea.  It will make a student process who that character is and what makes him or her tick.  This is $1 to download and can be used in grades 6-12 over and over again.

Here are a series of literature discussion cards to use with any novel.

A link with fun ideas after you have read the novel.

Here is a site with a ton of graphic organizers.

More graphic organizers.

Or how about creating a Facebook page for some of the characters in the book?

If you have any other fun ideas I would love to hear about them!
