*Of Mice and Men

COMMON CORE for THE ANNOTATION ORGANIZER

*Students ask themselves and respond to multiple levels of questions related to behaviors and actions in the literature.

• The type of questioning in the left column of the chart is really “analytical
questioning” because the students are required to think about the plot, theme, and setting of the literature prior to writing a question.

*Students respond to central themes and relate to central ideas.

• Questions in the first column are related directly to central idea. These questions help the students to explore the central themes. The entire strategy helps students to explore the central themes using comfortable language.

*Students draw conclusions and analyze their conclusions.

• Student comments are a form of conclusion; students are expected to justify and support initial comments.

*Students explore the relationship between their point of view and the point of view of one or more characters.

• The completed annotation provides students with an analysis that fosters this comparison. This reflection is especially necessary when completing the prediction column.

*Students justify their point of view.

• In the column labeled comments, students use their own language to discuss their point of view. The writing is personal, but the content must be valid in that it directly relates to the question being evaluated.

*Students relate the literary experience to their lives or to other literature.

• Through the make a connection column students think about this relationship. These connections are “not forced,” meaning that if a student cannot immediately generate a connection, then this column is complete later. The idea of connection-making is that it has a personal, associative nature; the students’ comments in the previous column help to increase the likelihood that a sound connection is made.
