Before we launch into our novel study, we need to take care of a few minor points:
- Meet with everyone who is reading your novel. You need to decide on a reasonable breakdown of reading each day. Your schedule should be somewhere in the range of 12-15 sections, remembering that you will have to read a few sections during the holidays. Once you have defined your sections, please call me over so I may take a look.
- Next, we need to talk about the strategies we will use to read these novels. We will review what we did in Grade 10, and discuss the strengths/weaknesses of this approach. I’d really like to know how you would like to approach this unit.
- The remaining time will be dedicated to reading; we are a day or two behind my original schedule.
