Mrs. Landry's Team 8-1 Blogging in "symbolism" is our celebration of this classic literature unit. Students worked in literature groups to lift symbolism analysis from the pages of our favorite titles. Once again, our 21st century "digital native" skills are being showcased. These are the classic titles; textual quotation evidence and citations; and critical analysis of our team!
My blog post checklist:
1._______Identify a central symbol in your classic novel and explain what it represents.
4._______Background information and description: at what point (in the plot-line: exposition, rising action, crisis, climax, falling action, resolution) were you aware that this object carried a symbolic value?
5._______Quotation is properly cited where the symbol is identified.
6._______Explain what clues in the passage suggested that the object should be viewed symbolically.
7._______Think about specific tension a character has faced.
8._______Claim statement: authors use symbols to convey a theme or message, what is a theme of your novel, and how does the symbolism serve to convey this message?
***Students identified symbols throughout their classic titles within: a word, an event or action, a character, a literary device, a moment of tension, an object.
