This 5 paragraph literary analysis essay builder teaches students the elements and structure of literary analysis with highly scaffolded instructions, examples, graphic organizers, mentor texts, video links, and plenty of space to build each paragraph.
Students will be guided through the whole process with clear, 2nd person, friendly instructions. Each paragraph can be a workshop of its own, making it easy to teach in manageable chunks, while allowing motivated students to move forward and self-pace.
Because this essay builder is so thorough, many students will be able to take off on their own and work through the whole process, producing an excellent literary essay independently. Literary analyses are likely to show up on most state tests, so make sure your students are prepared to analyze literature like a pro!
NO PREP! This builder is print and go, designed for flexible use. It's perfect for seasoned writing teachers, as well as those who've never taught literary analysis.
Great for students who are ready to self-pace. Also, works wonderfully taught as whole class mini-workshops and/or STATIONS!
