Product Description

Students often struggle with analyzing writer’s style. They usually can identify elements of style like tone, diction, detail, but where they have trouble is thinking about the effects of those stylistic choices. I’ve written a simple passage about a couple going out for the evening. Students are to change aspects of diction, punctuation, etc. to achieve a humorous effect.

I’ve included a graphic organizer for students to describe and analyze the effects of the changes they’ve made.

When students write, they’re thinking like writers. The more we allow students to write and think about the stylistic choices they make, the better able they’ll be at analyzing author’s style.

By the way, in the narrative I've created, the police become involved when someone is caught speeding--nothing more than that :-)

What you get:

  • Tips for teaching style analysis
  • Original passage for students to augment
  • Graphic organizer for students to analyze elements of style analysis
