An EXCEPTIONAL tool to help students hone in on and remember key aspects of major novels or plays as they analyze them. This tool was created as a means to help my students prepare for the AP English Literature & Composition Test, but I also use it with standard-level English students. It's a terrific graphic organizer for any student who is tasked with literary analysis.
You could have your students do this activity as a class or assign it as homework/independent study. This would be especially useful to you if you have students reading various independently-chosen novels or plays.
