ANALYTICAL QUESTIONS for JANE EYRE by CHARLOTTE BRONTE
The following short answer questions developed to allow students to practice with close analysis on a small, controlled scale. Each question attends to different literary terminologies, requires the use of critical thinking, and challenges students to use varied writing techniques while bridging the gap between concrete and abstract ideas. As a result, these questions can be used a homework assessments, in class writing assessments, collaborative group work. Additionally, the responses to these questions can act as a diagnostic to help identify weaknesses in students' reading comprehension, writing ability, analytical skills, and capacity for both abstract and critical thought. Each section of questions is highly differentiated and thus includes all types of learners. Moreover, each question was written with standards in mind and aim to build on skills that are imperative for success in ELA testing. These are all relatively high level questions but can be easily modified to reach students of all levels.
