Literature Symbolism Analysis Project

Literature Symbolism Analysis Project


Students are required to create a poster or Glog (online multimedia poster) that contains the following items:

The name of your symbol

What it represents in the context of the novel

Three or four quotes from the novel that illustrate the significance of the symbol

Pictures that represent the symbol

Optional: For a Glog, multimedia elements that also illustrate the symbol or its meaning

In order to assign this project, you may need to give the students a Glogster tutorial.   Once you log on to the site, the process is fairly straightforward.  Aside from clip-art-type items, students can upload audio and video and create web links.
