Analyze How Literary Elements Shape Responses to a Work
This literary response and analysis lesson focuses on analyzing how literary elements shape responses to a work. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments. In this lesson, students read a passage and the responses. Then, they identify the factors (physical appearances, dialogue, thoughts and actions, etc.) that influenced the response, and the literary element (setting, characterization, them) being used in the text. Finally, students analyze how these elements shape a reader's response. In addition to the lesson, there are five pages of Independent Practice and review with questions modeled after current adaptive testing items.
