We're working through a novel together in 5th grade right now. The name of the novel, Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer, is secondary to the title of the unit, "REFLECTIVE READING". We are really trying to hone in on what it is exactly that makes a reader "reflective". Here's the anchor chart that we have come up with for now. This chart was created during two whole class discussions (two separate classes), using the words of the 5th graders. I just sat and typed while they talked. (Then I made it LOOK nice after school.) It will be added to as we go, but I think they have a pretty good start!

Oh, by the way, I will be adding pictures of the KIDS reading & discussing around the edge, but for now I borrowed some pictures from Mike Sansone's flickr set called "What Real Readers Do". Thanks, Mike. I promise, NO dioramas! :-)

I love the Artemis Fowl series. This is quite an interesting project.
