Symbolism in Literature / Literary Symbolism
Students learn how to uncover the meaning and how to analyze the role of symbols in literature in this two-day interactive lesson.

The class will discuss literary symbolism using examples on the PowerPoint. There are opportunities within the lesson to brainstorm ideas before students are expected to work individually.

The EATS lesson plan includes an Essential Question, Activating Strategy, Teaching Strategies and an Exit Ticket.

Students will understand how to correctly answer the Essential Question by the end of the second day- because they have been taught the strategies, they have worked collaboratively, they have seen a model answer, and they have worked individually.

This product includes:
• A powerpoint
• A worksheet
• An activity
• An exit ticket
• Assessment
• Answer keys
