Do your students really understand the process of literary analysis? Do you get a lot of plot summary instead? I’ve been teaching analysis for almost three decades now, and the biggest lesson I’ve learned, from much trial and error, is that I need to focus on the process, not the final product. We need to break down the steps and give kids the time to master them before we assign a final essay. (Options for Distance Learning)

This product is not focused on creating a final product, but on lessons that you can use while your students are reading a text, ones that will provide scaffolding for them, so when it comes time to write an analysis, they should be ready. The handouts, slideshows, and activities are all designed to teach students the steps they need to follow when they do an analysis, whether it’s for a major assignment, or just for class discussion. (NOTE: students will need to have an understanding of how elements such as setting, point of view, characterization, etc. contribute to author purpose. If you need help with that click here).
