Product Description

This guide is a great resource for students who struggle with knowing "what to look for and what to say about it" in a piece of literature. I have broken down the key literary elements and put them in a concise format for students to use as a reference as they read. Next, I've included a list of "what to say" about each literary element with ideas and sentence starters.

This piece gives extensive examples, definitions, and ideas for writing for the following elements:

- Diction

- Symbolism

- Social Commentary

- Figurative Language

- Setting

- Characterization

- Point of View

I've also added some bonus words for students who may already understand a basic analysis, but need a push toward more complex ideas such as:

- Allegory

- Allusion

- Archetype

- Motif

I print a copy of this 4 page guide for all of my students and have them place it in their notebooks. It serves as a guiding resource for the entire semester!
