Rosemarie Batson 1. Novel Study - How do you teach a classroom novel? Things to consider: Are you following a certain practice? How is class instruction designed? Have you incorporated an online book community within novel study or are thinking of doing so?

2. When Analyzing Complexity of a Literary Text,(worksheet model on page 60), do you believe one element carries more significance than another? Explain.

3. In the Reader-Task Considerations, (worksheet model p. 61), discuss a time when you selected a book for a student according to interest, background and ability, attitudes and maturity, or potential for stimulating thought, discussion, and further reading. What was the outcome of this recommendation to your student?

Pat Bove I believe that they are all connected to fully understand a work. However one should start with the meaning and the structure. We have to consider all facets of understanding complexity of texts. It is like a sandwich: one shouldn't have just the meat and the bread...add the trimmings and it is a better sandwich. Have a full analysis to better understand the text and be more involved in what the author is communicating. (Question 2)
