Quilting with the Elements of Fiction

Eighth graders using the six elements of fiction (plot, theme, characterization, style, tone, mood) create "quilt squares"--PowerPoint slides, which illustrate, explain and defend opinions for each element. Each group totals nine squares assembled on a large surface. Students present their quilts to their peers for evaluation.
