Product Description
The purpose of the task is for students to demonstrate their knowledge AND understanding of the literary text.

This is a fun, creative, real-world, text-based activity that works wonderfully where sickness, emotional distress, or even death are central to the conflict and plot.

-Reading The Scarlet Letter and want to analyze the Reverend’s sick descent? This will encourage students to trace his emotional and physical pain in order to diagnosis his death.
-In “The Story of an Hour,” Ms. Mallard’s heart disease is related to her death - or is it? Students use this form to determine how she dies.
-Diagnose what is destroying Peeta in The Hunger Games.
-Students can infer the mental state of Richard Cory in the poem by the same name.
-Wondering what is really plaguing the girls in The Crucible? Students can determine the girls’ real medical emergency with this form.
-Was Hamlet mad? Let students decide as they complete this physician’s report.

In numerous other novels and short stories, sickness, mental illness, and even death plague the pages. Your students will love to stretch their imaginations in response to the text – they love that this makes literature come alive! You will love that this activity is text-based and standards-driven!

The purpose of this activity is for students to focus on details regarding a main character’s emotional or physical pain or injuries, even those leading up to death. It brings up discussions of internal and external conflict. This activity requires students to recall facts, but also make inferences beyond the surface details so you can see if they truly did understand the magnitude of the illness and its role in the story.

Skills Focus: Summarization and Conflict

Students will use citations from the text to complete the physician’s form.

Is it Common Core aligned? You bet! Common Core connections are included!
