This is a complete, full-process writing unit centered on teaching a Response to Literature essay focused on the theme of a work. This can be used with any piece of literature. In this unit, you will find a writing prompt, prewriting, a composition outline, and a working outline.
After discussing theme in general, then analyzing the theme(s) in the piece of literature you are reading, your students are ready to commence a response to literature essay focusing on theme.
I typically teach this full-process writing unit in 5-7 days, depending on my students’ needs. Included is a general scope and sequence for this essay; of course, tailor it to fit your students’ needs.
