Product Description
Rainbow Rowell's 2013 novel "Eleanor and Park" is immersed in allusions to comic books, film, literature, music, and current events popular in the 70s and 80s. In order to better understand these allusions, this webquest contains quotes from the novel and hyperlinks in which readers can access information about these allusions online to learn more about them. The hyperlinks vary depending on the allusion. Some hyperlinks access Wikipedia entries, some go to YouTube scenes from referenced films or songs, and others links to articles on these people or events. This activity or worksheet is especially helpful to a reader unfamiliar to American culture in the 80s. A teacher can divide all 54 allusions among the students or groups and have students present their findings to each other or the class. Ultimately, students should have a deeper understanding of how these allusions affect and enhance the work's characterization, setting, and tone. All page numbers reference the 2013 Orion published paperback of the novel.
