How to teach a novel? (1-2 short novels for the entire S.Y)
Hi! I'm going to be a literature teacher for grades 4 - 5 this coming S.Y. the problem is I gave been assigned to teach only 1 - 2 short novels for the entire school year. Honestly, I have never taught a novel before. I've done dramas, short stories and poetry but I was never bound to teach just a specific literature. I currently feel lost.
Should I teach it just like I would a normal short story? chapter by chapter?
Is there a way for me to inject other kinds of literature when I teach a novel?
Please do share some strategies that you've used in teaching a novel.
