We dove into setting again while reading Tuck Everlasting . As we delve more and more into citing text evidence, I wanted the students to really see what that meant.
Chapter one of the book describes the setting of the book in great detail. In fact, it is so vivid that I had the students dissect the chapter to create a drawing. On that drawing, they were only allowed to put something that appeared in the chapter. If it wasn't written down, they couldn't draw it.
Wow...short and sweet! How unlike me :)
