Collaborative Reading of a Novel: Adapting the Macro-Cloze Procedure for Reading a Novel.
Bartolome, Paz; And Others
With the aim of relating reading with wider social action, this paper discusses the macro-cloze procedure for reading a novel, which promotes social interaction while reading and helps develop students' ability to predict, ask questions, and summarize. The paper includes a brief rationale for the procedure (in which each small group of students reads and analyzes only one chapter of a book; instructions for the teacher in implementing the procedure; a 22-item list of children's books appropriate for the macro-cloze procedure; a 9-item bibliography; sample questions based on the books; and student's "letters" to the teacher discussing readings.
