Response To literature

You can use the following prompts for a response to literature lesson, or as a spin on a book report.
  • What is the main idea of the story?
  • What is the author's message?  What does the author want you to "take away" from the story?"
  • What is the moral, or theme, of the story?
  • Convince another person your moral, or theme of the story, is correct by using sufficient evidence and details from the story.  You should focus on character’s feelings, actions and thoughts.
  • Compare and contrast the main character to yourself, somebody else, someone you know, or another character from this story, or another story. 
  • Explain why the story may be useful, or valuable, to those who read it.
