This activity asks students to make predictions and ask questions about a book before they jump into reading it. It can be used to introduce students to any new book, whether a work of literature or a resource book such as Holocaust and Human Behavior. Spending some time looking at the cover and previewing the content of a book is an effective way to spark students’ interest and provide students with context that will help them engage with the material.
Students consider the impact of the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, and share the scenes that resonate most with them.
