Activity Overview


An engaging activity to do while reading, or after a few chapters, is a chapter recap. To help students grasp deeper meanings from novel, it is helpful for them to create a storyboard which depicts a scene or, more importantly, a symbol, theme, or motif from each chapter. The finished product is much like a picture book, with one cell depicting each chapter of Silas Marner. For classes with daily computer access, students can create their board after each Silas Marner chapter. For classes with limited access, consider having students do their chapters at the end of each week!
