This is fully inclusive five week unit intended to reinforce skills of literary analysis through an authentic process where students learn to normalize the process of independently analyzing and discussing literary text. The preview file references every included component. The only thing a teacher needs to provide are a handful of magazines or other resources for advertisements for the (optional) media literacy component of the weekly jobs. I use this particular unit as students begin selecting, reading and analyzing short stories in my classroom, but this unit can be easily adapted to nearly any text.
