Use these worksheets with any novel or any 6-12 English class. They are very versatile and can be separated to reinforce a specific literary device or encourage students to find examples within the text or texts. Teachers can even give the unit to students to use for a single novel, a thematic novel unit, or to work through for an entire semester with multiple texts and books.
Students write down the definition of each device, find examples and copy the text that includes the device including the page number. Then they choose one or more examples and draw it out in the boxes provided using either the setting and characters from the book, or creating their own scene with witty, creative dialogue.
