This is a scaffolded five page resource with a text at its heart which is laser-focused on the main symbols in La Casa de Bernarda Alba.
On subsequent pages students are introduced to the what/how/why style of writing which leads to well-structured paragraphs, the language is given in English/Spanish with exam style questions and match-ups and a space for students to note down any symbolism references for future use.
This year I am trying to move away from PEEL as a writing aid acronym and I want students to write more about the literary devices that authors use and their intended effect on the audience. By the end of this resource students will be able to say whether the author has used a simile, metaphor, repetition or simply a word, how they have used it and what the author wants us to question, understand, imagine or feel. This is taken from the QUIF acronym taught to me by the English department.
I have designed this to be as usable as possible and I hope it strikes the balance between form and function.
Thank you Sara for being patient with proofreading everything!
