A Doll's House Themes: Textual Analysis Activity → Editable files! Revised in July 2016.
Here is a fun literary analysis activity designed to help students explore the major themes of Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House. You will need the following materials: seven large envelopes, markers, chart paper, and sticky notes.
Working in small groups, students will receive a folder with approximately ten quotations from the play. They will read each of the quotations and then attempt to decide upon a theme that can relate to all of the quotations. After checking with the teacher, students then begin to create a wall poster. On their poster, they will include the most powerful quotation to represent their theme as well as a detailed analysis of the author’s use of language.
Following completion of the wall posters, students will participate in a carousel discussion in which they review other groups’ posters and ideas. This is a hands-on activity that my students thoroughly enjoy! It is also a great form of test prep if you are preparing students for EOC’s and Common Core final exams.
