Using: Wonder and Inside Out & Back Again

Conduct an in-depth comparison of two award-winning, contemporary novels. Prompt students to think critically, analyze deeply, and cite extensively from texts. Examine how two authors approach literary elements such as Characterization, Plot, Setting and Genre, Theme, and Craft and Structure. Students will gain a thorough understanding of the novels, supporting their ideas and opinions through deep discussion, written responses, and the creation of Interactive Literature Notebooks. Also included are activities for the individual novels. This is an excellent resource for modeling and mastering close reading! Correlated to the Common Core State Standards.

Comparing and analyzing literature develops strong critical thinking and writing skills. This series develops these skills by analyzing two novels in conjunction. Students complete a wide variety of activities that compare the ideas, craft and structure of the novels. Section I of each workbook provides comparative activities. After reading and studying each novel, students complete activities focusing on the literary elements of characterization, plot, setting/genre, theme and craft/structure. Section II includes one unit that focuses on each novel and one unit that can be used to study either of the novels. Each unit begins with teacher instructions. Students, individually or in groups, are encouraged to develop multiple skills for responding via methods like discussion, textual evidence and written response activities. Activities are opened-ended and emphasize individual interpretation. Answers are not provided. Reproducible for classroom use. 96 pgs, pb. ~ Ruth
