Depending on your pupils’ reading skills in English, it is possible to read the novel faster (2-3 weeks). In order to keep the pupils interested, this may be an advantage.

The pupils should be provided with a list of vocabulary to assist them in their reading (see below).

3.2 List of vocabulary

When reading extensively with pupils, the teacher should point out beforehand that the pupils do not need to understand every single word in the text. The aim is to understand the content. As long as the pupils understand the meaning of the story they do not have to look up unfamiliar words. The main challenge with extensive reading is the start. Therefore the first chapters do have quite a lot of the vocabulary translated. As the pupils become familiar with the story, there are fewer words translated.
