My literary elements analysis interactive notebook flipbook for ANY novel or story practices so many essential skills in an easy-to-assemble handy flipbook (no cutting or pasting!). I also included traditional handouts for teachers who do not use interactive notebooks.
This story elements literary analysis flipbook includes six sections to use with any book or story:
1. Character Development: Students must analyze how the setting, events, and other characters have influenced each one.
2. Setting: Students analyze how the setting affects the tone of the story, as well as how different themes utilize the setting to convey their messages.
3. Point-of-View: Students evaluate either first-person, third-person limited, or third-person omniscient narration--depending on the novel or story--and how different events, the setting, and other characters impact the way it is narrated; students also analyze why the author chose that perspective and how it influences different themes.
4. Plot Analysis: Students choose different events from the novel and analyze how each contributes to the tension and conflict in the story; students also evaluate the author's structure of the story and why/how the author uses various literary techniques for storytelling.
5. Literary and Figurative Devices: Students examine the words used in various quotes and how they change or impact the tone and mood of the story; students also identify and explain various figurative language devices such as simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole, idiom, and imagery.
6. Overall Effects: Students dissect a theme to see which characters, events, and elements of the setting helped deepen the meaning of it.
Students practice higher-level critical-thinking skills which include analysis, synthesis, inference, summarizing, and more.
The activities can be used at ANY point in the novel or story AND can be REUSED at any point, making them even more versatile. They are perfect for stations, group work, or individual independent reading.
The best part is there is NO CUTTING involved! Just print the pages (front/back), stagger them, make one fold, then staple. You don't need glue or tape, either!
PLUS, if you just want to pick and choose which skills to practice for a certain story, you can just use the individual worksheets rather than the flipbook.They are great to use with short stories and for sub plans.
