When I make a study guide for a book I am reading, I follow these steps:

  • Use sticky notes to highlight key points
  • Either on paper or with the computer, I will use each chapter number as a roman numeral (I., II., etc.) 
  • Under each chapter, I record characters in that chapter and key events that take place
  • Within the study guide, I highlight the climax, rising and falling action, and resolution.  Remember to note any problems that arise within a chapter and how it is solved
  • End study guide with the conclusion of the story
