In this assignment, students analyze a scene or passage from TKM and write an essay showing how it helps develop an overarching theme of the novel. Included is an example paper with a Works Cited page and a rubric that explains everything needed in the paper.
For example, in this paper, they focus on the concept of respecting everyone regardless of social class.
You could also do coming of age, racism, walking in someone else’s shoes or whatever you want.
I use this assignment for my lower level classes.
