    When you do novels with your students, do you read them together, have the students read on their own, etc. . .I have mostly below grade level students, so I read with them-give them parts, read to them, use audio. I think for next year, I need to have them read on their own more often. What are your thoughts?

    I assign the reading in advance of the class period with some type of verification that the reading was completed. (a sentence summary or picture) Then, our discussion can be more robust. We will also read select sections together.

    I just gave them a survey on the final test today. Interestingly, the lowest readers said they wished I would read the stories to them. :) Everyone else loved the pre-reading.

    I usually read together as a class and most of the time we use the audio version of the book. I do this for our short stories in the textbook and for novels. I would like to incorporate more independent reading on our class stories, but I use a class set of books because our literature books are heavy and we only use them for the stories themselves.
