The Literary Understanding and Depth Guide is a graphic organizer that will allow students in grades 3-6 to analyze a literary reading selection to the depth and rigor of the STAAR in Texas. The guide allows students to :
Identify and distinguish between different points of view
Comprehend the story structure (Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then)
Infer character roles, descriptions, and relationships
Evaluate characters actions
Synthesis their own actions in the selection.
This guide works well with a literary selection that has characters with a conflict. To use, pair this guide with a literary story or passage. Have students read the selection and then complete this guide. Then, students should complete any questions with the selection.
If you are looking for more depth than just practice questions before the STAAR, this is great for test prep.
