I used this lesson with my 8th grade English students. We had just finished reading a novel, True North, and were moving on to a literature circle unit studying the novel, Night. This single day lesson served as a bridge between the two novel study units, applying the new terms, symbol and motif, to a text they were familiar with while setting them up to trace symbol and motif in the new text. This lesson, however, is pretty flexible and can be adjusted to fit your students’ learning needs and goals.
