Examining Ambiguous Elements
This Grade 12 Reading Literature Comprehension worksheet delves into the concept of ambiguity in literature and its deliberate use by authors to enrich the meaning of their works. Students are tasked with identifying several passages in the assigned novel where they perceive ambiguity, whether at the word, sentence, passage, or chapter level.
For each identified passage, students are required to explain why they find it ambiguous and delve into the purpose of this ambiguity. This exercise encourages critical thinking and a deeper understanding of how authors employ uncertainty to engage readers and convey complex themes or ideas.
