This five (5) page document is used to help students find and analyze symbols in literature. You can use this lesson plan, handout, and graphic organizer with virtually ANY text that you are reading.
There is a three page, very detailed, common core aligned lesson plan.
Then there is also a two page student handout, one page of which is the graphic organizer for the activity.
The lesson plan is great for observations and, more importantly, it's great for struggling readers who need a little extra scaffolding. This lesson really breaks down how to interpret symbols for the students.
I recommend using this lesson plan several times throughout the year.
