Giving students a choice for literary analysis will keep them engaged in the assignment. This product includes an assignment page for a choice novel that focuses on African American authors (perfect for 11th grade American Literature study), but the rubrics and final test can apply to any literary analysis.
Students will annotate their novels focusing on literary elements such as character development, theme, setting, figurative language, cultural impact, and tone. Then, they will use their annotations to develop three literary analysis paragraphs to show they can analyze a work of fiction.
