Instructional Ideas

  • Have readers copy the template into their language arts notebook and note other examples of figurative language that they find
  • Create a found poem based on the poetic language from the novel, in which learners rearrange the passages they find to craft a new piece of writing
Classroom Considerations

  • The procedures part of the lesson is skimpy; consider augmenting it with more discussion, examples, or guidance
  • Comes with the worksheet for completion, but it only includes one passage from the novel, and no blank templates for readers to use 
Pros

  • Promotes close reading and literary analysis
  • The second part of the worksheet would be a good resource for another story, novel, or poem
Cons

  • Beware grammar and usage errors
