Literature Circles 2013
True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle OR Black Duck
We are focusing on 3 main literary elements while reading these novels. First, we will focus on predictions. You will make predictions throughout the novel. Second, you will focus on Characterization. What are the characters like? What tone do they present to the novel? Third, you will focus on theme. We saved this literary element for last. What did you learn? What was the moral of the story? What was the lesson learned for the characters?
While focusing on these elements, you must look at the plot development - the five stages. What other elements could be touched on?
