When working with complex novels like Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, students can often feel overwhelmed and a bit lost.
Wuthering Heights has complex characters and plot twists and turns that can be confusing, so it's natural some students will struggle while reading this text.

Posing essay questions before, during and after reading, then, is a smart way to make sure students get a solid understanding of all aspects of the story.
