Read it and remember it!


By reading a book a day, students can be introduced to a lot more books. What you do is take a book and literally rip it apart. You can do this by chapter or by a couple of chapters depending on how long the book is. Divide the class into small groups. Give each group a section of the book that they are in charge of reading. When each group is done, they will describe and draw pictures of what happened in their chapter, on butcher paper that you have hung up around the room. Then as a whole class, you can go over the entire book. You have now read a book in a day. Students will read the book assigned. The student will be able to list the main characters from the book, and the part they played. The student will be able to describe the overall theme, setting and plot of the book.  Students will be able to know specifics about one or two chapters, and get the general idea of the rest of the book, and Report to the rest of the class, in detail, about the section of the book they read.
