This handout offers a model of an analysis paragrpah and walks students through the writing process. It has students select a plot element and a thematic idea (which they turn into a theme statement) to focus on. It then instructs them to develop a thorough paragraph including a topic sentence, textual evidence, at least two sentences of explanation, and a concluding sentence.
The resource is a Word document that can be edited. This can also be used for various texts with minimal editing.
