Finding great excerpts for syntax analysis can be really difficult, but this product contains five different passages from Brave New World that are appropriate for syntax analysis! Each passage contains directions on what students need to complete to fulfill the requirements of the assignment. Students will work through the analysis in groups which will help them to think aloud through the entire process. By the time the students are finished analyzing, they will be expected to document their conversation about the context of the passage, and then document their discussion on how three different elements of syntax help to reveal who characters are, what the tone of the passage is, and/or how it reveals the theme. The format of the assignment is easy to grade, and it is easy to assess if students truly understand how syntax can function in a text.
