PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 2-page resource (or 1 page, front and back) is a small but meaty tool for teaching students about close reading for fiction texts.

The organizer's tables help students develop the following skills:
-Identifying textual evidence for setting, and making inferences based on that evidence.
-Identifying textual evidence for characterization, and making inferences based on that evidence.
-Drawing conclusions about author's purpose and theme

This tool works best with short works of fiction or individual chapters of novels. In my 9th grade English classroom, I teach an introductory unit on close reading, setting, characterization, author's purpose, and theme using "Girl" by Jamaica Kincaid. This organizer is the perfect companion to a short, meaning-packed text such as "Girl."
