Literary Analysis Essay: Lessons Learned
This is a literary analysis essay that your students will enjoy writing and you will enjoy reading!
Your students will be engaged because it requires them to relate something they have learned to their own lives.
You'll be happy to read the essays because the process students go through will keep them focused and organized. And, they will be able to not only analyze how a character changes but also how their development relates to an important message in the text.
NOTE: this essay is also part of my Character Arcs, Archetypes, & Journeys resource.
This resource provides you with everything you need from start to finish:
- A slideshow that introduces the assignment and guides you through an evaluation of the sample essays provided
- A step-by-step guide for students
- A rubric you can use to assess their essay
This assignment could be used at any point in your course, but would be a wonderful end of the year assessment, as students have to choose a character that was used to teach a lesson in one of the novels they have read, whether they were part of a full class study or independent reading.
