Does anyone use excerpts from popular books to teach reading?
I teach 8th grade ELA and I am considering ditching the class novel for book excerpts instead. I've used class novels for a few years now and am beginning to think that they are just not worth it. Book excerpts would allow me to introduce my students to many more books and also would take much less time. Has anyone used this method before? Any suggestions or recommendations on how to go about this?
