Product Description
Thank you for your interest! I created this packet of resources for my own students, and have used them with success.

You may want to spend some time with these documents in order to determine if you want to use them as a packet, or if you want to break up some of it into lessons. For example, you might want to use the Practicing Quote Integration worksheet as a mini-lesson.

I hope this resource is of help to your students with the planning of a literary essay. If you have a prompt/s already, feel free to use them. But, I have included two handouts with general literary analysis essay prompts if you are giving your students a choice. They can be used with any novel or dramatic work. Upon choosing one of these prompts, the student will develop a thematic statement, and turn it into an original thesis. This is one of the many steps in the process. My goal with these is to help students understand the parts of the essay fully before venturing into writing.

Writing excerpts/references using the following literary works are used in examples: The Pearl, Romeo and Juliet, The Adventures of Huck Finn.

Included are the following documents:

+Five detailed, general literary analysis prompts for use with any text (1)
+Thirty brief, general literary analysis prompts for use with any text (perhaps for higher grade levels or more advanced students) (1)
+Developing a thesis through theme (1)
+Body paragraph focus idea planner (1)
+Parts of an essay (reference) (1)
+Sample literary analysis paragraphs with questions (intro, body, & conclusion) (3)
+How to write effective lead-ins to quotes with samples and questions (1)
+Literary analysis outline (3)
+Essay requirements (MLA sample for reference) (1)
