Looking at "words of wisdom" from a character in the story helps my students to get to know a character and understand the theme of the story. It also helps them connect ideas from the story to the real-world.
How I use this in my classroom....
I type up meaningful quotes or words of wisdom from the text for students to cut and paste into the quote box. Then students discuss and respond to the quote. You can also have students copy a quote from the book or off the board.
This freebie can be used with any novel!!
