If you are really interested in teaching Coming of Age on a whole new enthralling level please think about purchasing my Coming of Age Genre Unit Resource:
Coming of Age Unit Resource
I have provided 4 different forms of the Dualistic Themes in a Coming of Age Story Graphic Organizer. These graphic organizers are perfect prewriting tools for any Coming of Age Thematic Unit in Literature. They are perfect for addressing Common Core shifts and in helping teachers create lesson plans for a strong curriculum and more rigorous classroom instruction. Analyzing excerpts from any given text literary text will definitely be made easier. Please use whichever form you or your students are more comfortable with. The varying lengths of the analysis response space will also allow you to differentiate your instruction. This graphic organizer should be used only after students have been immersed in Coming of Age as a Literary Genre or Universal Theme (see free downloadable content “Coming of Age Literary/Literature Resources”). Lastly, using Sandra Cisneros’ novella The House on Mango Street as the driving text, I have provided a sample of what the complete graphic organizer should resemble.
