Buy it once and use it for all genres! CCSS aligned and requiring critical thinking, with this activity, you can spend time teaching your students how to analyze instead of teaching them how to use a new graphic organizer. The power in this graphic organizer comes from the section where students reflect on the impact of a particular literary device on the text. Once students understand the purpose of using a literary device or technique, they can effectively use it in their own writing.
This product contains an explanation page and student worksheet. For most texts, it will take 1-3 days to fully examine the author's craft. This activity can be used effectively to prepare students for a literary analysis essay. It also pairs well with my "Tracking Theme Through Narrative Poetry" assignment.
