Close reading and literary analysis is made easy with these set of 11 station activities covering plot, gender, psychology, power, conflict, point of view, characters, structure, literary devices/figurative language, historical context, and setting with scaffolded questions.

Literary analysis can be difficult for students to understand. This is why I made this station activity to help students understand the steps involved in analyzing a complex text in a collaborative setting.

You can have students annotate a text at home and then have them come to school to complete this activity with no prep on your part! When complete, you can have students participate in a discussion or gallery walk to show their findings, and then reflect on the activity as an exit ticket.

Included in this are 1 student handout, 11 station cards, station directions, how to use, and black and white versions to save ink.

This activity is suitable for grades 9-12. This is a NON-EDITABLE document. This activity works well with any text.

Now includes Google Drive digital edition.

Analyze how complex characters (e.g., those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme.
Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone (e.g., how the language evokes a sense of time and place; how it sets a formal or informal tone).
Analyze how an author’s choices concerning how to structure a text, order events within it (e.g., parallel plots), and manipulate time (e.g., pacing, flashbacks) create such effects as mystery, tension, or surprise.
