Product Description
Can you figure out WHEN a story is taking place?

Here are 8 excerpts, mostly from popular or classic youth books. Use them to discuss setting with students. This worksheet created an interesting discussion with my students using authentic texts.

Some suggestions for use:

1. For guided practice, use immediately after a mini-lesson on identifying the time setting.

2. After using this activity, challenge students to pick up whatever book they are presently reading for pleasure, tell you the time setting, and defend their response with evidence from the texts.

After using this, please let me know your suggestions or other good excerpts to use in future, similar worksheets.
