Writing teachers, give students a one class break from the hard work of literary analysis writing by allowing them to have fun in multiple intelligence small groups.
These activities are aligned with the literary analysis work students will need to do while writing a companion book/literary analysis essay on “The Stolen Party”.
Students LOVE these activities because they get to show off their unique talents and/or be goofy.
Topics Covered in These Multiple Intelligences Activities:
Melodic Mozarts: Analyze the relationship between Rosaura and her mother
Scintillating Shakespeares: Analyze the coming-of-age theme
Amazing Monets: Analyze Rosaura’s character evolution
Magnificent Math and Science Wizzes: Analyze the coming of Age Theme
