This is a *GROWING BUNDLE* that includes Common Core aligned Literary Analysis Graphic Organizers for multiple short stories. Literary and text-dependent analysis are becoming increasingly important as students are often required to cite textual evidence and analyze aspects of literature.
This growing bundle currently includes the following short stories/products:
-"The Tell-Tale Heart" by Edgar Allan Poe *RECENTLY ADDED!*
-"There Will Come Soft Rains" by Ray Bradbury (includes BONUS Poem Analysis for "There will Come Soft Rains" by Sara Teasdale) *RECENTLY ADDED!*
While specifically designed to meet middle school Common Core Standards, some of these stories work well for early high school. Each of the stories include multiple versions of a literary analysis graphic organizer that can be easily added to a unit of literature study.
Each of these products also include an optional worksheet that can be used as a stand-alone assessment or an addition to an assessment. It includes literary analysis and a text-dependent analysis question. Answer keys are included for these worksheets.
Options for these products include:
-teacher think aloud
-whole group practice
-small group practice
-a reading station
-an addition of close reading
ALSO INCLUDED: This bundle also includes my Literary Analysis Interactive Notebook Activity. This Interactive Notebook Activity is designed to outline the basic components of literary analysis. Through this activity, students learn more about text evidence and text analysis.
Multiple versions of the Interactive Notebook Activity are included, allowing for easy adaptation. The Interactive Notebook Entry can be used with any piece of literature (included the short stories above), but sample answers and notes are provided.
What is a growing bundle?
As I add Literary Analysis Graphic Organizers for short stories, they will be automatically included in this bundle. They will be in the same format and will always include a text-dependent analysis question. You have the flexibility to mix and match what version you use with each short story. For example, the text-dependent analysis question may start out as guided practice and eventually become part of an assessment later in the year. Each product costs around $4 individually, so this bundle is priced to save you money. As stories are added, the price will increase. I also plan to add in a bonus item or two over time.
If you have any short stories in mind that you would like to have added to the bundle, please contact me.
