Learning Tuesday (Nov. 6)

A Novel Scavenger Hunt

Goal: To review and strengthen reading skills so we are able to recognize what a writer does well. Then we can apply the technique to our own writing. Bonus: you will end up hearing about a book or three that you want to read.

Preparation: Bring a novel or two that you are familiar with to the meeting.

The first activity will be working on your own for 10 minutes to tag locations in your novel(s) where the scavenger hunt items (you will be supplied with a list at the meeting) are found.

The second activity will be working in pairs for 20 minutes to do the same thing.

The final activity will be sharing your favorite finds.
