PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this lesson, students complete close readings of Thomas Hardy's poem, "The Man He Killed," and Liam O'Flaherty's story, "The Sniper." Then they synthesize their understanding of the readings and write a short literary analysis essay.

They complete handouts with before, during, and post-reading strategies, which provide scaffolding for the writing task. Afterwards they respond to a literary analysis writing task that imitates the style of the PARCC prototype and asks them to consider universal themes. This lesson provides practice with literary analysis writing. Incorporating all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Anchor Standards, skills stressed include annotation, poetry analysis, and essay writing.

The 24 page resource includes the following:

-explicit lesson plan with identified Common Core ELA Anchor Standards,
-anticipation guide
-contextual reading guides
-think aloud with sample annotation passage
-story and poem texts
-analysis graphic organizers
-Venn diagram
-literary analysis writing prompt
