Product Description
Need a great quotation analysis and critical thinking lesson?

When studying a literature text students need to create detailed analytical explanations of the language and techniques used. But often students find they run out ideas after a couple of sentence.
This skill - to write a lot about a little – needs practice. A lot of practice.

Fix this problem with these ‘Quotation Explosion’ worksheets.

Suitable for any literature text: prose, poetry, or drama, they encourage your students to analyse the language used in detail.

By “exploding”:
1. The quotation
2. It’s literal meaning
3. The deeper implied meanings of individual words in the quote
4. Different interpretations of the quote or word (after all we don’t all “read” texts the same way)
5. Then link the quotation to the themes in the text.

This can be used with any literature text. The set contains 5 different versions of the worksheet – both in colour (for projecting) and blackline for printing.

How I use these worksheets:
Begin with the text you are studying, and as suits the needs of your class select or distribute short quotations for analysis. We tend to go for 8 words or less.
Write the quotation into the central (smallest) blast.
Allow students to begin their analysis with the quote’s literal meaning – so they can be confident with what they are studying.
Students should then pick out one word or a short phrase (like a simile) to analyse in the detail. Exploring the implied meanings, symbolic and figurative allusions made.
Much literary language can be interpreted in a number of ways. Ask students to consider what different interpretations they could consider. So older students and college level this can include critical perspectives such as feminist, Marxist readings etc.
Finally ask pupils to link the quotation to one of the major themes, ideas or universal concepts in the text.
