Product Description
This activity allows students to practice close reading by annotating for patterns in a text by using a portion of Act 2 and Act 3 in Our Town by Thornton Wilder. They then use these annotations to help them make inferences about a theme of the play. Lastly, they find similar patterns in other acts that would support their inference and align with their other annotations. I use each of these activities on separate days for a whole class period. We briefly discuss the act, I give them the handout. They complete it (finding evidence takes a while), and then we discuss together and I annotate on the board.
