Trouble engaging students with difficult novels? Allow them to create meaningful CONTEXT by assembling interactive Pinterest boards. The example here is for The Scarlet Letter, but the idea can be transferred to any novel.
The Scarlet Letter (Novel Book): It is about a woman in puritan times who has an affair. She is punished by wearing an A on her clothing. The man is not publicly punished, and it goes through her story. I would like to read this because it is a classic. I also would like to read it because of the women rights issues displayed in this book.
