This activity is used while reading William Golding's novel Lord of the Flies. I use this activity as a way to keep students connected to the major events in the book, as well as hold them accountable for their reading of the novel; it serves as quick formative assessment.
For each chapter of the novel students have to do the following: answer a chapter question centered around a major literary device, embed textual evidence and analyze their evidence. When they are complete with the activity students can use their answer(s) to participate in a class discussion, Socratic Seminars or Fishbowl Discussions.
The activity includes criterion for each chapter square, chapter question, two preset answers (*for formatting purposes), and rubric--each square is worth 20 points.
