Novel Studies

Yesterday both of my AIG groups started reading new novels. I found it rewarding that they were so eager to read that they did not really want to do any of the prereading activities. Even though they did not want to do them, we still looked at information about the authors and possible projects to complete as we read or after we are finished reading the book. I am trying to think of a PBL activity we can do as we work with these books. Even though both groups are reading different books, both books are in the genre of historical fiction. We are completing a historical fiction packet as we read through these books. Maybe my PBL activity can have something to do with this genre. Maybe students should have to create a way to teach others about the historical fiction genre or create a way for others to know if a story is historical fiction or not.
