  • STR 3.F – Explain the function of a conflict in a text.
  • NAR 4.C – Identify and describe details, diction, or syntax in a text that reveal a narrator’s or speaker’s perspective.
  • LAN 7.B – Develop a thesis statement that conveys a defensible claim about an interpretation of literature and that may establish a line of reasoning.
  • LAN 7.C – Develop commentary that establishes and explains relationships among textual evidence, the line of reasoning, and the thesis.
  • LAN 7.D – Select and use relevant and sufficient evidence to both develop and support a line of reasoning.

The slideshow notes, quizzes, and test are in PowerPoint and Word form so you can make edits. Most other resources are in PDF form. The files are clear and colorful, as well as thought-provoking and ready to use.
