Use the classic short story, “Thank You, Ma’am” by Langston Hughes to teach your students the elements of literary analysis. This one-day lesson plan includes detailed instructions, a 6-question deep-thinking exercise (with detailed answer key, of course), and an optional writing activity that shows students step-by-step how to build a powerful introductory paragraph to any literary analysis essay.
This lesson is best for advanced middle school or high school students.
