These are all the documents that I have used for both a regular and honors level American Literature class for their research papers. They ask the students to write about common themes that we have studied throughout the year, showing their connection over time. The zipped file includes: (2) prompts (one regular, and one honors; Thesis statement check sheet; quote harvest sheet; a list of themes used during the whole year; & a reading that we have done in class (broken down by the time period or "-ism"). I break everything down into small steps so the classes don't get overwhelmed by the magnitude of referencing an entire years worth of work. I had great success with this project.
