Summary

Novels have the power to invite readers to enter the story world and experience the lives of the characters in a profound way. [...] Participating in a novel study challenges students to explore the characteristics of the genre, elements of story and aspects of the theme in detail. [...] After a group of students have finished reading a novel in the text set, readers provide a summary of the plot, characters, moral dilemmas and other interesting story details to the class. [...] In order to create a sociogram, ask students to do the following: • Print the main character’s name in a large circle in the centre of the page. [...] The following techniques can be used: – lines of varying lengths to show the proximity and closeness of the characters to one another; – a variety of lines, such as straight lines for family, jagged lines for enemies etc.; – words recorded along the lines to indicate the main character’s relationship to the other characters in the book.
