Description More Information
"There is a danger when using novels for your reading course that the novel is “read to death” and the enjoyment is lost for the students. Trying to teach individual skills using a novel or having the students stop after every chapter to answer mundane comprehension questions can spoil all the fun of reading and dilute the story so much that students dread to work on literature. At the same time, simply reading loads of books without reflection does not make a thoughtful, good reader. What students need is to read challenging texts and to think deeply about them.

So three methods of using a novel for a reading course are suggested. One method is to have the student simply read a work straight through, first of all to enjoy the story and then to discuss it at the end of reading. A second way is to reflect and discuss the novel as the story progresses, studying the work as literature and considering literary devices or plot and theme. A third way is to use the work as a basis for a unit of study on a particular time period, integrating it with other works. All three of these methods have merit. Using a combination of all three throughout the year would provide a well-balanced variety."

- Margot Davidson, author of the Connecting with History Literature Guide series
