This story element packet includes notes and graphic organizers dealing with characterization, setting, theme, plot and writer's styles. It can be used as a separate unit or along with specific texts. There are 21 pages of reproducibles, including a conflict quiz and answer key.
These reproducibles will be helpful for the student who needs explicit notes and simple graphic organizers based on support from the text as well as students ready to analyze text independently. Extensive notes on Setting, Plot, Theme and Author's Style provided.
These activities are scaffolded and differentiated: teacher decides on groupings for analyzing texts, decides the extent to which notes are explored and determines groups if applicable. These reproducibles and graphic organizers can be used for any type of fiction, including poetry, and some nonfiction as well. Duration depends on teacher objectives, and graphic organizers can be used repeatedly throughout the school year.
