We know that allowing students to select the books they read helps build crucial reading skills and fosters a life-long love of reading. Included is a step-by-step set of guidelines for writing a novel analysis to be used with any novel your students select. The Novel Analysis Guidelines include suggested literary devices to include in the thesis, thesis statement samples, a description and samples of an introduction (hook, background, and thesis), as well as guidelines for the body paragraphs and conclusion. An assessment rubric is included, as well as directions for MLA citations, heading, spacing, margins, block quotes, and ways to introduce quotes to avoid repetiton and informal tone.
