Product Description
I use this assignment as my 11th grade research paper, and I like it for a few reasons. First, it requires students to analyze poetry and then use literary criticism to strengthen their own original analysis (this is where the research comes in). Secondly, there isn't a paper like this (that I've found, and I've looked) online and available for copying.

This paper can be customized to the work of any poet. Students complete the assignment by doing the following:
1 - TPCASTT analysis of three poems with a thematic connection
2 - Annotating literary criticism on three poems
3 - Thesis statement
4 - Rough draft
5 - Final draft

The goal of the assignment is to find three poems by the same poet with related themes, then write an original thesis and create a paper based on how the poet conveys those themes. This document is an entire unit, and will walk you/your students through the writing process.

This document is an entire unit, and has everything I use to teach the research paper. It includes:
the assignment
rubric
list of potential topics (I've used American poets here, but it can
definitely be expanded to include others)
TPCASTT analysis outline
Sample paper outline
Links to websites that contain literary criticism
Links to websites that contain info on grammar, writing style,
citations, etc
Thesis statement handout
Thesis statement student samples
Introduction student samples
Student sample paper (includes entire essay, but excludes the
works cited page)
Handout: Tips for writing a research paper
