Product Description
Increase students' awareness of a great African-American and improve analytical writing skills simultaneously with this resource.

Guiding questions train students to break the evidence down into parts, which helps promote detailed analysis. The corresponding paragraph outline not only explains the structure of a literary analysis, but it also uses the student's responses from the guiding questions worksheet as the basis for the analytical paragraph. The result of this combination of resources is a well-structured, thorough, logical analysis. This unique combination generates high quality results time after time!
