Content
An Approach Paper consists of several sections:

I.                 
Proper heading with your name, date, class, and novel/play title
II.              
Summary
a.     
Aim for one three to four sentence paragraph that explains the ENTIRE novel using as much description and detail as you can manage. 
b.     
To encourage your writing style, you may not use semi-colons or colon in this section. 
c.      
Each sentence must start out in a different way. 
d.     
If you must, you may use more than one paragraph.  You must keep this section short and to the point.
III.          
Character Descriptions: 
a.     
Choose three or four characters in your novel or play.  By each character’s name, list four or five words which describe the character distinctly.  Use vivid vocabulary.  You may use the dictionary, thesaurus, or internet for ideas.  If you use a particular word to describe a character, you may not use the same word to describe another character!
IV.             
Description/ Essay Questions:  Write three questions that a teacher might ask about the novel or play either in class or for an essay.   You must then provide an answer for that question.
V.                
 Key passage:  Choose the most important passage in the novel/play (in your opinion).  Type it up word for word in the approach paper.  Make sure to identify the key speakers.
VI.             
Key Passage Explanation:  In a fully developed paragraph, explain why your chosen passage is important to understanding the novel/play.  In your explanation, make sure you integrate quotes (actual words or phrases) from the passage to strength your explanation.  Often, this selected passage will offer clues to the novel/play’s themes.  Explain any mentioned or inferred themes connected to the key passage.
