Product Description
Help your students to understand the mastery of Harper Lee's writing by completing this annotation activity which focuses on pace of narration. Do your students know that writing, like a car being driven, has a pace? Students explore how Harper Lee masterfully slows down events, building suspense, and then speed them up for climactic events. Passages from chapters 10 (the mad dog scene) and 21 (the trial verdict) are excerpted for students to examine. Students are challenged to find words and phrases that achieve a sense of pace. Included in this activity is a completed model of annotation. In addition, some tips on using annotation in class are provided. This is an individual activity used in conjunction with whole group discussion, but could easily be adapted for small group work as well!
