This graphic organizer can be used with any piece of literature or short informational text. Students read your assigned text and assess the problem found in the text by answering open-ended questions. The final question, pushes the lesson into a
Quad D Moment where students put themselves in the position of one of the characters.
Also included with this graphic organizer is a writing prompt that asks students to analyze the main problem found in the text. This writing prompt is a great practice for Common Core Standards RL.1, RI.1, W.4, W.9, and W.10.
I use this assignment to get students to realize that there can be several ways to look at a problem or situation found in the literature we read.
