Product Description
Building student background knowledge regarding key stories frequently alluded to in literature is essential for developing more critical readers. In this packet, I have included an initial scavenger hunt activity, two versions of an allusion assignment (one group and one individual), and an allusion passage test. I have also included links to completed versions of student work for both assignment versions.

The student allusion assignments are formative assignments allowing the teacher to check student knowledge, and student presentation of their work and sharing of their learning is essential for reciprocal teaching and learning.

I use this activity and assignment with my AP English Literature class, but it is also an excellent assignment for a ninth through eleventh grade pre-AP language arts course.
