How to ... Report on a Novel

Fill the map in with the required information and then practice composing simple and short sentences.

The rectangular bubbles represent the key points of the presentation of a novel. The oval bubbles aim to widen the information. Students can easily make simple sentences, then paragraphs and finally a text which will be an excellent summary or presentation of a novel.

The map works clockwise. Start by writing the title of the bubble in the central bubble.  Now find the bubble of the same color: General introduction. Fill out with the information that are requested, try to be synthetic. Ideally you should use nouns only.

Continuing clockwise the map will guide you to collect all the elements you will need. 

The map is a didactic aid. It may be used as a compensatory measure for students with dyslexia and as material for study by anyone else.
