This literature project engages students in analyzing Oscar Wilde's short story "The Happy Prince." My advanced fourth graders loved it! The story works well across upper elementary because it offers multiple layers (like an onion, as I tell my students) for readers to access the complexity. For copyright reasons, this product does not include the short story, but it is easy to find online.
The project moves through eight steps of analysis, including inferencing & personification. It includes the Challenge/Rules/Expectations for students & a rubric for evaluation. It also includes a copy of a student Vocabulary Analysis Sheet to track unknown words while reading.
This activity could function for:
* Enrichment or gifted & talented classes
* Literature stations or centers
* Collaborative literature project
This project addresses so many different ELA standards, I couldn't list them all!
Also consider my TpT "Analyzing Leo Tolstoy's 'Three Questions' Short Story" too: http://bit.ly/13YvqN3
If you have any questions or concerns, please use the “Ask Question” option & I will get back to you ASAMBCA (As Soon As My Busy Classroom Allows)!
