This can be a 4-week, 3-week, or 15-day novel study that includes The Writing Revolution paragraph-level activities, discussion prompts for each chapter, a guided note-taking project, a vocabulary journal, and ideas for a book club with further discussion questions about the whole novel. 

For 12 days, your learner will read, take notes, complete sentence and paragraph-level writing activities, and study vocabulary. On day 13, your student will select the prompt for their final project paragraph and brainstorm details for it. On day 14, you will discuss the note-taking project with your learner, and they will also outline and draft a paragraph. On day 15, they will revise and edit their paragraph to produce a polished final draft. On day 16, you can have a themed book club with further discussion questions, snacks, and activities.

We recommend doing 8 to 12 novel studies per year.

About The Vanderbeekers of 141st Street:

"The Vanderbeekers have always lived in the brownstone on 141st Street. It's practically another member of the family. So when their reclusive, curmudgeonly landlord decides not to renew their lease, the five siblings have eleven days to do whatever it takes to stay in their beloved home and convince the dreaded Beiderman just how wonderful they are.

And all is fair in love and war when it comes to keeping their home." - Amazon
