Product Description

Do you need an effective way to teach your students to support their ideas with evidence from the text and explain their evidence? Scaffold any writing assignments with this Reading Journal, intended to be completed as students read the novel A Separate Peace.

For each there is a specific prompt and chart for analyzing the response with at least 3 examples from the text. Students can then use these as brainstorming for larger writing assessments. I have used them as brainstorming for formative writing throughout the unit, as well as summative writing at the end.

Prompt Topics:

  1. Chapter 1 -Symbolism of Setting
  2. Chapters 2 & 3 - Gene and Finny's Relationship
  3. Chapters 4 & 5- Gene's Guilt
  4. Chapter 6- Two Rivers Symbolism
  5. Chapters 7 & 8- The Impact of War
  6. Chapters 9 & 10- Characterization of Leper
  7. Chapter 11- Revelations During the Mock Trial
  8. Chapters 12 & 13- Fate vs. Free Will
