Product Description
LITERATURE - TEMPLATES, RUBRICS AND ORGANIZERS -
WRITE ON ABOUT PLOT, THEME, CHARACTER, SETTING
Templates, graphic organizers and rubrics are useful tools for getting your thoughts in order. These aides are invaluable to students who often rush through assignments, failing to see connections and transitions and leaving a job half done. The handouts in this packet will help organize your students.
They cover four major elements of literature; setting, plot, character and theme. The forms are deliberately left general in nature so they can be used with any short story, novel, drama, and even, in some cases, non-fiction. They were designed as supplements and presuppose some instruction on these elements has already been done. However, our CK Teaching Aids' instructional packets in each area are available through TPT. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Ck-Teaching-Aids
The packet as a whole is useful as an organizing aide for an independent study unit in literature. It could also be broken into sections for an independent study in any of the four major elements.

PLOT
The graphic organizer for setting is used as a student handout but also serves as an overhead for classroom discussion. The generic nature of the handout makes it useful as part of an independent study unit. The settjng rubric makes the assignment, allows space for the response and provides a rubric for self-check and teacher grading. Values for each item in the rubric are left to the individual teacher.

A graphic organizer which will outline plot development is one of the handouts in this section. It traces the development of the plot throughout one story, illustrating the placement of introduction, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution. It is also useful as an overhead for classroom discussion. The Plot Timeline emphasizes chronological order without addressing the other aspects of plot.

THEME
The theme graphic organizer breaks down the requirements for analyzing and supporting a statement of theme. It demands multiple examples and detailed explanation. Students who are uncomfortable with writing essays will find the theme template helpful. It provides a pattern for developing a brief two-paragraph essay on theme complete with transitions. The theme rubric makes the assignment, allows space for the response and provides a rubric for self-check and teacher grading. Values for each item in the rubric are left to the individual teacher.

CHARACTER
Graphic organizer, template, and rubric handouts are included in the section on character. They perform the same functions as similar handouts on theme. Again, values for each item in the rubric are left to the individual teacher.

SETTING
The graphic organizer for setting is used as a student handout but also serves as an overhead for classroom discussion. The generic nature of the handout makes it useful as part of an independent study unit. The settjng rubric makes the assignment, allows space for the response and provides a rubric for self-check and teacher grading. Values for each item in the rubric are left to the individual teacher.
