Product Description
Critical thinking through a physical metaphor—gifted and talented literacy at its best!

In this lesson, we use postcards as a sort of glyph or metaphor to examine the interaction between ANY characters, plot, and the setting of a story or novel or even poetry. This lesson can also be used to for history or social studies as we examine the effect of the time and place on its people.

Each portion of the postcard is representative of critical thinking about literature. Graphic organizers help students plan the contents of the postcard. The resultant product is packed with meaning.

Level—upper elementary through 8th grade; students respond at their own level.
Classroom time—up to 6 hours or one week of hourly sessions.

In this lesson bundle, you get ready-to-print graphic organizers to lead the students through the postcard glyph and guide their thinking, explanations and sample responses, and Common Core State Standards citations.

With literature or history you already use in your curriculum, you’ll be ready to go tomorrow.
