Product Description
Have you ever wanted to assess your students' abilities to identify common literary elements? This is a simple lesson that packs a major punch! As students read a portion of a text (the great thing is that it can be from ANY text), I have them annotate for five specific literary devices: diction, characterization, imagery, detail, and setting. After they have identified these in the text, they write the evidence on sentence strips. Then, as a class, we determine which evidence is the strong (working on selection of detail) and then we write an analysis paragraph on the topic.
**I will be posting the analysis paragraph template assignment in the future.

The students love this activity since it is more hands-on than a simple annotation activity. It leads to great discussions.
