Product Description
These handouts can be used most effectively after students have read the novel A Separate Peace by John Knowles. Students are asked to explore the use of thematic dichotomies (like summer vs. winter and a comparison of the two rivers) throughout the book. This document also includes a simple graphic organizer with which students can generate examples of how the title is a pun. Finally, students will consider the symbolic meaning of several concrete objects and write short responses. One handout - Blitzball - can be used to generate class discussion, essay topics, or creative assessments.

These handouts can be used individually or as part of a reader response journal. The packet is also useful for a sub plan to cover classwork during a planned absence.
