How can we prepare students to confidently write a literary analysis for the PARCC or other state test?
This differentiated lesson walks students through how to write a literary analysis comparing and contrasting two texts clearly step-by-step.
-Links to two texts ("Thank You, Ma'am" by Langston Hughes, and "Thank You, Ambrose" by Ivan Donn Carswell)
-A video reading of "Thanksgiving" by Ralph Waldo Emerson, if you would like to have students analyze a third text.
-Two graphic organizers to provide students with support.
-Flexible test prompts
You will have all you need to arm your students to do their best with literary analysis writing. Be sure to check out my other lessons in my store, Dreamy Designs by Debbie Dennis.
