Help students analyze symbolism in The Pearl by John Steinbeck with this hands-on activity. This product contains step-by-step instructions for a flipbook project and a demonstration PPT for students. This Teacher’s Guide corresponds to John Steinbeck’s The Pearl, but the concept and rubric can be used for any novel or poem. This also includes two editable versions of a rubric that you can use to make grading easier.
The tabs move from concrete to abstract, helping students progress through the analysis. You can have students label these whatever you want, according to the needs of your project and classroom.
