Elements of Literature: Setting

An excerpt from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance provides high schoolers with an opportunity to examine parallels between the setting and the difficult situation the father faces. Consider extending the instructional activity with other passages from stories like Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher," or Sartre's "The Wall" that show that the setting is a deliberate artistic choice.

Lesson Planet has greatly assisted me in finding appropriate worksheets to accompany my lesson plans. I recently switched from high school to junior high and needed assistance in finding grade appropriate material.
