Product Description
Analyzing is one of the more difficult reading strategies, but it's also one of the most engaging and rewarding activities for students and teachers alike. After I introduce the concept of analyzing with a minilesson, my students and I use this activity as our first round of analyzing a variety of texts.

This worksheet is two pages total (I have also included a note to teachers, which provides links to additional cartoons and other suggestions for how to embed this worksheet in a larger unit). It has three different types of texts for students to practice analyzing: a short film (with guiding questions), 2 political cartoons (with scaffolded response formats), and a cute little poem that is chock full of symbolism to dissect (which is also accompanied by probing questions to get students thinking).

My class is always engaged when we analyze these texts together, and our discussions usually lead to laughter on more than one occasion. I hope you find this resource as beneficial as I have.

***Please note that this assignment is also sold as part of my larger Analyzing Texts Bundle.
