Analyzing Text (fiction or non-fiction)

Analyzing Text (fiction or non-fiction)
Product Description
Help students acquire the basic, yet foundational skills, for analyzing ANY text: identifying genre and point of view, and determining author's purpose and main idea.

Students read ANY text (your choice/theirs) and choose answers from multiple choice options. They also must include text evidence to support their answer choices. It's a very "flexible" document. Designed for multiple-uses, multi-use.
Flexible use options:
-for use with fiction and/or non-fiction; shorter or longer texts
-use for quick genre studies where short stories/articles are analyzed
-use to compare/contrast genres
-use to remedy genre confusion [mistaking historical fiction for historical non-fiction and mistaking 1st person narrated realistic fiction for autobiography]
-use as an "end of book" response or as part of a project
-use to document SSR/DEAR or as part of a lit. circle or center
-use as a document in a reading program such as Read 180, Accelerated Reader, or any other anthology/basal reader
-use it to supplement articles/stories from teacher-purchased books or on-line resources
-for use with whole class or small group novel studies
-use for remediation
-use as HW or as part of a packet
-use as a "do now" or "exit ticket"
-use as test prep. or assessment
Use it more than once, in more than one way!
