This resource includes guiding notes for students to be able to analyze characters, setting, conflict, resolution, and theme of a novel/story on their own. Perfect for stations or reader response notebooks. Full and half page notes are included for each of of the elements of a story to be used as a handout or to be glued into a notebook. At the end of each page is a place for the students to synthesize all of their thoughts into one or two concise sentences about that element of a story.

-Characters- Determining role and contribution in the story & identifying character traits and offering textual evidence as support for trait choice.

-Setting- Determining time period and its role in the story & describing physical locations and the events that occur there.

-Conflict - Identifying examples of types of conflict: character vs. character, character vs nature, and character vs self.

-Resolution- Determining if a conflict was resolved in the story, determining how the problem could have been solved or if the resolution will last long term

-Theme- determining lessons that the reader could learn from the novel and the specific novel events that taught that lesson

Two anchor charts are included (perfect for whole-group lessons):

-One chart is for determining character traits and should be used with sticky notes.
- The other anchor chart is for conflicts of differing types and their resolutions, which can also be used with sticky notes.
