SOAPSTone (Subject, Occasion, Audience, Purpose, Speaker, & Tone) remains a critical access point for analyzing non-fiction text. This resource provides prompting questions to guide students in their reading focus and substantiate their answers with textual evidence. Beyond this column, an area is reserved for analysis where students briefly record the impact and impressions made by their findings. A final column is reserved for students to develop "burning questions" that relate to this strand of focus and potentially be used for group or class-wide discussion.
