Use this resource to teach your students HOW to write a strong analysis
of a citation. This lesson is designed around Shirley Jackson's short story "Charles" but can be applied to any text. Students first make a T-chart to brainstorm the best citations and analysis for the given prompt and then review sample answers to distinguish what makes a strong analysis. Recommended- move through the review with your students, using a different highlighter to mark the component parts of a strong analysis (transitions, tags, and key words from the prompt)
. Space is also included for students to revise their citations and analysis after the lesson.
