Objective: Analyze setting by breaking down its features in detail.

Begin by Reading in your book club group!

Mapping the World (JF Map): Use a mind map to show how the setting of your book is similar and different from a generic, middle-class, suburban, American setting.

  • Think About:
    • Income levels
    • Physical Location
    • Era (the time period)
    • Politics
    • Age
    • Rules of Society
    • Technology
    • The Supernatural

Living the Differences (JF 750+): Describe the ways in which the setting of your book makes the lives of your characters different from how they would be in a generic, middle-class, suburban, American setting. Best answers will build in your thoughts from the map.
