Having trouble getting your kids to incorporate analysis in their writing? Analysis is one thing that students and teachers struggle with in Social Studies because you know what it is when you see it but it's hard to tell someone HOW to do it. My special education Social Studies students ask themselves these general questions about the information they've incorporated in their essay and write brief responses to ensure that they've included analysis in all of their paragraphs. I hand this out with every writing assignment in my class and I have a huge copy of it on the wall. It's a great push for students to go from good to great!
