Help your students to write quality literary analysis essays. This pack contains two checklists to guide your teaching and your students' writing. One checklist details the components of a literary analysis essay and the other checklists details the components of a comparative literary analysis essay. Also included in the pack is a student resource that shows different text phrases to use when linking textural evidence into an analysis. The final product in this pack is a comparative essay mentor text that teachers can use to closely study and follow as a guide with students. This mentor text would be great for teacher demonstration and for use in a mini-lesson to explicitly teach the important components in a literary analysis essay and to study the structure of organization of this type of essay. This pack works well with the "Comparing and Contrasting Characters Anchor Chart" and the "Student Copy of the Anchor Chart" also found on Teachers Pay Teachers.
