This activity is fun and engaging while building students' critical thinking skills. In pairs, students work with the 12 quotes I give them (complete with chapter numbers) and begin to look for motifs, or patterns of ideas. Though I included a sample answer key, there are truly no "right answers" (which my reluctant students love!) as students must defend why they organized their quotes the way they did. It is a lively class period and students become great defenders of their textual evidence and motifs. This helps them recognize how motifs become themes and how themes create meaning. This is one of my favorite activities to observe!
