The worksheets in the complete packet include: setting, characters, plot, visualization, reflections, thought provoking essay questions, response to text identifying supporting details,connections, rising, falling action and climax, the five senses and themes. These worksheets can be used with small and large groups, at literacy stations, as assessments or one-on-one with students. Having students work on them together in order to brainstorm for answers, creates lively discussions and often a better literal and inferential understanding of the novel and its components.
These worksheets can also be used as teaching tools. For example, if your students don't understand what the rising and falling actions are as well as the climax of the story, do a lesson with the whole group and have them fill in the worksheet as they brainstorm for answers.
