Companion resources for "A Wrinkle in Time," by Madeleine L'Engle. Includes...
- Graphic organizers connecting the novel to the universal theme "Journeys." (I always made "Journeys" the overarching "Big Idea" during this novel study. My students started out brainstorming about journeys, then made connections and inferences about themes relating to this big idea as we read the book.)
- "BioTowers" Cooperative Task (students use key details to make inferences about the strengths, weaknesses, and characteristics of each main character, using textual evidence to support their thinking)
- "Investigating Allusions" activity (graphic organizer guides students in researching an allusion in the novel, and making inferences about what it means and why the author chose to include it)
- "Story Map" Analyzing Settings (activity that requires students to make a "map" of major settings in the novel, using direct text evidence to support their generalizations about each setting)
