Product Description
Make literary analysis fun for your students with these magnifying glasses! Students use them to examine the following literature elements: character (words & thoughts, relationships, physical appearance, actions), setting, plot (rising action, climax, falling action, resolution), conflict (human vs. human, human vs. nature, human vs. self, human vs. society), and theme.

To help meet the needs of all students, this activity provides scaffolding with a short story analysis graphic and "frame" a quote handout. These activities help students write theme statements that identify the complex meanings of the assigned text (can be used with a novel excerpt also). Teachers can use these to differentiate instruction, design jigsaw activities, or encourage cooperative learning.

This 22-page document includes the following:
-teacher instructions
-eighteen magnifying glasses (including blank templates)
-short story graphic organizer
-frame a quote handout
-handouts with questions to guide students in their analyses
-models and examples using “The Open Window” by Saki
