Description:

Students will be exposed to the exceptional writing of Natalie Babbitt while reading the novel, Tuck Everlasting. Various activities will be provided to reach the needs of all learners, including gifted and RTI students. Students will work on comprehending texts while applying metacognition to their work through questioning. With interactive work between students in each text, children will gain a better understanding of the text and truly experience a more well rounded novel study. This project allows students to understand the value of reading, as well as gain a better understanding of a text through the application of question answer relationships. All too often students just read a text and really never delve in deep; however with this novel study students take their comprehension to the next level. Students will be exposed to new vocabulary, writing activities, character development, and questioning strategies. With a wide variety of activities to stimulate all learners, students will walk away with an abundant amount of skills to help them fine tune their reading abilities.
