PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

LITERARY ESSAY: Students struggle with the literary essay, often because they don't look at it as a thinking process. The lessons in the package will slow them down and have them follow steps that will lead them to better written essays.

The first lesson is one you can use if you want students to choose their own topic. The lesson takes them through the thinking process they should follow to develop a strong argument about their text. A slideshow and graphic organizers are included.

The remaining lessons take students through the process of writing the essay. After a brief introduction to the purpose of a literary essay, students will work on developing a strong thesis, using exemplars to guide them. Next there are lessons and/or handouts on the following: the structure of the essay/paragraphs, writing an introduction, summary vs analysis, developing ideas, using quotations and transitions, and writing conclusions.

There are opportunities for students to do some revision during the lessons, as well as a revision checklist they can use themselves and/or with peers. Finally there is a rubric for you to use to assess the essays. Editable versions of the checklist and rubric are included.
