This common core aligned series of lessons includes seven quotes from the text, "Refugee", for students to analyze, as well as a blank form for teacher or student-selected quotes. Students will write both formal and informal response to literature pieces about the important quotes from the text. The more formal piece of writing focuses on identifying a conflict. I’ve also included a flowchart that helps students to identify what type of conflict is revealed in the quote that they have identified as significant. This practice with examining and identifying quotes is intended to help the students improve their selection of and use of quotes in their writing.
