Do your students really understand the process of literary analysis? Do you get a lot of plot summary instead? I’ve been teaching analysis for almost three decades now, and the biggest lesson I’ve learned, from much trial and error, is that I need to focus on the process, not the final product. We need to break down the steps and give kids the time to master them before we assign a final essay.
This resource is not focused on creating a final product, but on lessons that you can use while your students are reading a text, ones that will provide scaffolding for them, so when it comes time to write an analysis, they should be ready.
The handouts, slideshows, and activities are all designed to teach students the steps they need to follow when they do an analysis, whether it’s for a major assignment, or just for class discussion.
(NOTE: students will need to have an understanding of how elements such as setting, point of view, characterization, etc. contribute to author purpose. If you need help with that click here).
Teachers who have used this are saying:
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ The materials are extremely detailed and the students were able to produce MUCH stronger thesis statements with greater confidence at the start of this year than in previous years.
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ This resource is amazing! It's very detailed for both teachers and students. The teacher guide explains step-by-step how to implement this resource. The student assignments are aligned with the purpose I needed. I'm very happy with this resource.
⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Rom 213 always has engaging materials - but what I found really helpful with this particular resource is the pages on using analytical verbs and nouns - this strategy really helped my students to elevate their writing to the next level. Their agency increased in terms of being able to see how "analytical language" sounds.
