PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are your students confused about text analysis? You know how to do it yourself, but you're not sure how to make it accessible to students? I know the feeling. Analyzing texts is hard, and it rarely comes naturally. It's a difficult concept to break down into a methodical process. Still, it can be done.

I created these analyzing texts materials to help my students practice analyzing a variety of texts (nonfiction, fiction, paired texts, short films, movies, commercials/advertisements, poetry). I found that by created scaffolding (guiding questions and prompts), students better understood the concept of analyzing texts, and they felt more comfortable with doing it on their own.

This bundle includes:
- a direct instruction PDF presentation and guided notes that breaks down the concept of analyzing in a student-friendly manner
- a whole-class analyzing activity that uses a poem, a short film, and two political cartoons (suggested use is included) - also sold individually
- an assignment that contains scaffolded questions to use with any text
- a short film (Night and Day) analysis assignment with scaffolded questions and an extended response (film available on YouTube)
- six graphic organizers to use with a variety of texts (commercials, fiction, nonfiction, poems, movies, and paired texts - text suggestions/recommendations and links are included)
- a pre- and post-test to track students' growth (with key)
- a unit overview (recommendations for order and text ideas)

Analyzing gets easier the more students practice it. Use these analyzing texts materials to help your students get extra practice with a difficult concept. Scaffold the process to make it more understandable and less overwhelming.
