Whole Novels for the Whole Class Whole Novels for the Whole Class is the hands-on resource that teachers can use to help students develop a genuine love of reading and a community in which to practice it. Written by classroom teacher Ariel Sacks, this practical, field-tested book offers a step-by-step guide for implementing a student-centered literature program that promotes critical thinking and literary understanding through the study of novels and other texts. Rather than using novels simply to teach basic literacy skills and comprehension strategies, Sacks's Whole Novels method approaches literature as art. This unique way into reading and comprehension is designed to align with the Common Core ELA Standards and is filled with tips for implementing whole novel studies in various settings. Using this novel technique can help struggling readers gain the confidence to tackle grade-level novels independently, reluctant students become avid discussers of literature who can powerfully argue their points, and outspoken students discover new channels for their voices in writing. While boosting reading comprehension, the whole novel approach can be successfully integrated into other classroom programs. "Yes, yes. To read a well-crafted book requires a leap of faith, losing oneself for a time. And yet we don't practice-much less even encourage-that kind of reading in our schools. Ariel Sacks both makes the argument for doing so and offers the stories we need from classrooms where it's being done." -Deborah Meier, teacher, author, and board member of the Coalition of Essential Schools "Reminiscent of masterworks, Ariel's book is an exquisite blending of the best in literacy theory and classroom practice that could only be written by someone who actually does this every day with real students." -Renee A. Moore, NBCT, English teacher, author, and education blogger
