Product Description

Prepare students to write a literary analysis essay with this lesson. Students first complete close readings of the poem "Naming Myself" and excerpt "My Name" from The House on Mango Street. Then, they synthesize their understanding of the texts, consider and compare themes, and complete a prose constructed response.

This resource includes the following:

  • explicit lesson plan with identified Common Core ELA Anchor Standards
  • anticipation guide
  • think aloud sample annotation
  • poem
  • novel excerpt
  • L.I.S.T. poetry graphic organizer
  • literature web graphic organizer
  • Venn diagram
  • literary analysis prompt
  • short literary analysis essay rubric
  • key (including detailed responses for all activities and a sample essay)

This "paired passages" lesson incorporates all strands of the Common Core English Language Arts (ELA) Anchor Standards. Students complete handouts with before-, during-, and post-reading strategies, which provide scaffolding for diverse learners. Afterwards, students respond to a writing prompt that imitates the style of a standardized assessment. Whether or not your students will face state assessments, this lesson provides instruction for any students needing practice with close reading and literary analysis writing.

With its detailed instructions and samples, this resource would make an excellent lesson for a substitute if you will be out for a couple of days.
