Product Description

Sometimes it’s hard to tell if secondary students are struggling because they don’t know the content terminology, or if they are having trouble comprehending a complex text. This activity will help students cooperatively consider literary elements with simpler texts, and will let you know where they need the most support. This is NOT a lesson instructing about the literary elements, but is meant as a review of terminology students have learned consistently in language arts classes.

In my class, I use this activity to review elements that we have studied prior to the final, where they will be asked to apply these elements to new texts they have never seen. However, it would also be useful as an introduction to a class after a break, or on a day when you need some movement and engagement after a difficult text or unit. I use this with 11th and 12th graders, but it would also be appropriate for younger secondary learners.

Included in this lesson:

  • Teacher set-up and list of potential children’s books
  • Link to Google presentation to guide students through the activity
  • Notetaking sheets for groups as they rotate through each book station
  • Terminology addressed: Conflict, plot, character (motivation), summary vs. analysis, MLA citation, diction, style, tone, mood, topic vs. thematic idea vs. theme
