Focus Group Assignment


Your group is responsible for FOCUSING on a particular section of the novel, then presenting the class with an interpretation of the most important details from that section. You will need to select/create:


a reading of an important passage from the section (practice first!)

they are important

a study question from your section (yes/no or one-word answer

1. Read passage and explain its significance to the whole section

2. Take class through event map, explaining each step.

3. Explain each character's significance.

4. Read study question and allow students to copy it.
