Description

This is a two-week long Writer's Workshop unit that teaches students how write a Literary Analysis.

When I teach this unit, my objective is to get students to complete a literary analysis through comparing and contrasting two versions of a similar story. I model this entire process using two versions of the Little Red Riding Hood tale. The two books I use are Red Riding Hood retold and illustrated by James Marshall and Lon Po Po: A Red Riding Hood Story from China by Ed Young. (Please note: books are NOT included in this purchase!)

There many ways you can use this product:

• After sharing the stories, work as a class to write a literary analysis of Red Riding Hood retold and illustrated by James Marshall and Lon Po Po: A Red Riding Hood Story from China by Ed Young. All steps—from reading the books, completing the organizers and prewriting, and writing, revising, and editing the essay—all are completed together.

• You can share the stories and then have the students complete the organizers, prewriting, writing, revising, and editing independently.

• You can share the stories and model completing the organizers, prewriting, writing, revising, and editing. Then, have students read two similar versions of another story and complete the process you have modeled. You could also have students read a book and then watch a movie-version of the book and compare and contrast those. (My lesson plans reflect this method.)

This product includes:

• Two-weeks of step-by-step Lesson Plans
• Anchor Posters (both color and black-and-white)
• Graphic Organizers (both color and black-and-white)
• Mentor Compare and Contrast essays for analysis
• Analysis Notes for Peer Editing and Revising
• Scoring Rubric
• CCSS Alignment
