This graphic organizer forces students to look at key passages, identify literary elements and consider how literary elements help illuminate the significance of a passage.
Students take their answers and go through the steps of gathering information, creating a statement and constructing a body paragraph that requires students to give evidence. You can use this activity as part of the planning process for a broader literary analysis paper on the novel. This activity requires students to create a topic sentence that sets up their paragraph. This is a great activity to help students learn the initial process of literary analysis.
