I print this sheet and have students find quotations to back up various statements character's may state about their 'dream' in the novel. Instructions included on the slide. Wanted to convert into a pdf version as well for easy printing, but I just print out the slide for them to work on. Students then share the evidence (quotations) they found and use this sheet to write a piece about the theme of ideals/dreams the characters have in the novel. Aligned with Common Core State Standards: RL.7.1 , RL.7.2
