Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding The View From Saturday by E.L. Konigsburg - Section 1: Background Information About Independent Reading Assignment


Reading A View From Saturday can be very confusing.  There are four protagonists, each telling their point of view throughout the novel.  I suggest to the students that they keep a tree map to identify the characters and be able to keep track of the relationships within the novel.  I have found that when students do this from the beginning, they are soon able to keep the names and relationships organized while reading and eliminate the need for the tree map within a short period of time.
