In today's teaching pedagogy, many teachers are abandoning whole class novels for small group novel studies. I personally love whole class novels and feel that they can definitely be a part of English class in addition to other text selections.
Whole class novels should not make up your entire English curriculum, as students benefit from a variety of instructional methods, and working in small groups with other students, but whole class novels are still beneficial for today's students.
In this #2ndaryELA Twitter chat, teachers discussed their favourite novels to teach by grade level as well as their favourite assignments. Read the curated Twitter chat below to discover some new ideas to use in your classroom tomorrow.
