  • StandardsNEW

This resource contains handouts, sentence starters, and student-facing checklists to help you teach your students how to effectively analyze evidence in a literary analysis essay.

There's no doubt that the analysis part of literary analysis poses the toughest challenge for many middle school-aged writers. These handouts will give your students the tools they need to think deeply, write clearly, and articulate their ideas in literary analysis.

I have used these resources with 6th and 7th graders over the past 7 years as a Title 1 middle school ELA teacher (40% ELLs, 35% students with IEPs). I use them in conjunction with mentor texts, outlines, and student-facing rubrics. Often, students just need to look at examples and practice with sentence starters before they get the hang of analysis.

Use this resource for:

  • Middle School (6th, 7th, 8th grade)
  • Low-Level high school
  • Advanced Learning / Honors Courses
  • Students with IEPs
  • English Language Learners (ELLs)

Included in this resource:

  • 1 mini-checklist for student self-assessment
  • 3 student handouts:
    • 3 strategies for effective analysis with sentence starters
    • Analysis description with sentence starters, checklist for body paragraph self-assessment and reflection questions
    • Chart with sentence starters - "Strong Analysis IS / is NOT"

Apply grade 8 Reading standards to literature (e.g., “Analyze how a modern work of fiction draws on themes, patterns of events, or character types from myths, traditional stories, or religious works such as the Bible, including describing how the material is rendered new”).
Draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.
Provide a concluding statement or section that follows from and supports the argument presented.
