Product Description
Use this planner to help students organise an analytical / expository essay response to the Australian novel, Jasper Jones, by Craig Silvey. This resource includes the following:
Page 1: Unpacking your essay questions and theme
Page 2: Selecting and analysing quotes with example analysis and paragraph
Page 3: Essay structure in clear dot points
Page 4: A whole page essay planner
Page 5: Essay edits on grammar, punctuation and writing style with examples
Page 6: Essay edits on formatting, spelling and sentence structure with examples

This resource also pairs with my Jasper Jones Analysis and Discussion Powerpoint that includes all the key quotes and literary analysis, chapter by chapter, for teachers to show during the novel study.

Teaching and Learning:
I use metaphors to help students think about analysis. I use the image of a percolator as a metaphor for thinking and brewing ideas as thinking is as much a part of completing the essay as physical writing or typing. So students should brew / distill clear ideas and responses in their essay. The second metaphor I use is that of a choice cut of meat. Strange I know, but students need to carefully select and trim or prune their chosen quotes for inclusion as evidence in their essay. I also suggest getting students to think about whether a quote should be included or not as it may be better just to paraphrase it in the essay.

Further Resources:
I also suggest setting up literature circle groups and getting students to use these discussion questions in their discussion groups each week. For excellent, free literature circle group work and role cards I suggest you visit The State Library of Victoria's page (https://insideadog.com.au/teachers/literature-circles).
For background information on the novel and free reading group notes, please visit the publisher's page (https://www.allenandunwin.com/browse/books/fiction/Jasper-Jones-Craig-Silvey-9781760295929).
