Product Description
After we have reached about chapter 12 I have the class do these 2 handouts. They both touch upon different layers of the novel.

1. Literary Device Practice: here the students are given 5 quotations for the novel. For each they must: annotate the quote, identify the device and then provide analysis. During the lesson I stress that we must not only look at the surface level of the novel, but the many layers below. Once you become a reader that can look past the top layer you become more critical and your knowledge and understanding increase dramatically.

2. Abuse of Power: here the students are given 3 quotations that revolve around the use of power upon another character (Graff w/ Anderson, Graff w/Ender and Ender with Bean in the 3rd). Students must read the quote and write commentary about the abuse of power. The twist is that they must provide evidence from the quotes given (and highlight them), but they may not quote more than 4 words in a row. They are practicing providing evidence but weaving their commentary with their evidence. This is the beginning stage of developing a writing style.
