Product Description
This lesson provides your students with practice writing a literary analysis prose constructed response. First, engage students with a Cherokee myth and a Greek myth: “How the World Was Made” and “Demeter and Persephone.” Then help students complete close readings of the myths with activity handouts focusing on before, during, and after reading strategies. An additional creative writing journal prompt has been included with this lesson to help engage your reluctant readers.

Afterwards, students complete a writing task that imitates the style of the PARCC prototype. Whether or not they will face PARCC assessments, this lesson provides instruction for any students needing practice with close reading. This lesson incorporates all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Standards.

The 20 page product file includes the following: explicit lesson plan with identified Common Core Anchor Standards, anticipation guide, journal prompt, contextual reading guide, sample annotation passage, texts of the myths, two literature web graphic organizers, Venn diagram, literary analysis prompt, short literary analysis essay rubric and key. Detailed responses for all activities and a sample essay are provided in the key.
