After or during reading a short story, novel, or poem, this assignment can be used for independent learning, group work, or partner work. I used it in place of a book report because the mosaic was more fun and focuses more on literary elements and figurative language. The teacher should hand out a copy of the instructions and a copy of the template to each student.. The template is legal-sized copy paper, so download the template and copy one sheet for each student. The instructions are regular-sized copy paper. Read over the instructions with the students. You can modify this any way you want. I did not include a rubric, but there are 10 sections, so take off points or add bonus points wherever needed.
