Want to spice up your quote analysis instruction, or simply get your students to appreciate beautiful moments in literature?

Use this short two-part assignment to help students to analyze famous, memorable, or just plain pretty quotes from a short story or novel.

After choosing a quote from your whole-class text or an independent novel, students will:
• Complete a graphic organizer to identify its characteristics, explain why they chose it, and complete a brief analysis process (of context, meaning, and significance)
• Create an illustrated 2D version of their quote, either digitally or with choice materials, to display the quote to others. Students then write a paragraph defending their artistic choices.

This 4-page download is ready to print and includes a student example. The best part is that the student artwork doubles as a display in your classroom!

Note: This assignment was originally created to accomplish CCSS RL.8.3, but these editable files can be made more or less difficult as you wish for your class!
