Setting seems to be a simple concept. However, many state standards require that students think about setting on a higher level. Students are challenged to consider setting and its relationship to mood, symbolism, and even theme. This set of exercises not only walks students through basic definitions but also challenges them to think critically about textual examples. There's plenty of room for practice + higher order thinking skills. I've even included a graphic organizer for ANY text that students can use to evaluate, analyze, and write about setting.
This set works great as a minilesson or intro to literary analysis.
