Description

Struggling to break down the literary analysis skill set for all learners? This student-friendly process makes a complex set of skills easier to teach. With 19 templates and numerous handouts and exercises, you can leave school at school instead of reinventing the wheel in your lesson plans! All materials are provided in both PDF and Google Slides, so in-person instruction can easily switch to remote.

Use color coding and visuals to teach students how to analyze literary elements and devices in bite-size pieces. The resource can also be a helpful tool for independent, upper-level home schooled students who need a framework for this process. The skills addressed can be applied to any work of fiction.
