Teaching Novels in the Secondary ELA Classroom

September 14, 2018

This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about teaching novels at the secondary level. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed the novels they teach at different grade levels. Teachers also shared whether that reading is done in class or for homework, as a whole class or in literature circles.

Read through the chat below to find out what skills are most important to cover when teaching a novel. You'll get ideas about engaging activities. You'll also find valuable resources to use in your own classroom.

Hope you'll join us next week for another chat. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter). 2ndaryELA is a group of middle and high school English Language Arts teachers looking to share ideas and best practices. This group is an extension of our Twitter chat and a place for collaboration, questions, and encouragement. Feel free to post teaching ideas, success stories, links, photos, etc. that will enhance our instruction.
