This is a great resource for students to use while writing literary analysis essays. I made this for my AP English Literature students, but also used it with my 10th grade pre-AP kiddos when I introduced them to literary analysis.
I used it as a two-sided handout. On the first page, there are some general guidelines for writing literary analysis. On the back, there is a formula for writing the essay, particularly focusing on the body paragraph, which I found my students had the most trouble with during this type of essay. This formula forces them to really prove and explain their points using specific text evidence integrated into their discussion.
Editable - so you can add your own pointers for your students!
