This Word document gives you all you need to have your students write detailed Short Story Analyses. Included is:
--a brief introduction to teaching an Analysis of a Short Story,
--a step-by-step assignment/instruction sheet (with checkboxes for each task) that you can give to students,
--a rubric (with categories for Structure, Process, Description, Spelling and Grammar),
--three suggested mini-lessons (How to Analyze Literature, Avoiding "You," and Keeping the Same Tense) with explanations,
--a detailed pre-writing sheet,
--and two mentor texts with questions.
The document is purposefully in Word so that you can tweak the instructions and/or rubric to fit your students' needs. Perfect for use in a writing workshop or as a single writing assignment.
