My AIG girls started a new novel today (A Year Down Yonder). I have a CERTL kit to go along with the novel. We worked on one of the cases today. Students became literary critics who had to write a review of the book but would not have time to read it before it was due. We discussed strategies they could use and elements of the book that could help them. Students ended up typing a prediction paragraph on the blog. At the end of the book, we will go back and check these predictions to see what was correct. We will also write a real book review after we finish the book. I also showed the students a student-made powerpoint as a introduction to the book. We might have to make one after finishing the book focusing on certain literary elements.
