Below you will find pictures of student work during my time long term substitute teaching. I have taken a liking to Ariel Sacks book, Whole Novels for the Whole Class: A Student-Centered Approach. This teaching resource has made me rethink the way I was approaching teaching novels within the classroom. It has given me many strategies to use with students for close reading, discussion and analyzation of the novel. The students have responded well and are gaining insightful meaning from their readings. We plan to have mini socratic circle discussions in the future regarding Night by Elie Wiesel.
