Free: Analyze This! A Step-by-Step Guide to Analysis

Product Description

Analyze This! is a step-by-step guide to analyzing literature

I created this bundle to help my students understand analysis and how to apply their newfound skills to write an effective essay.

The bundle includes:

– A page with suggestions on how to use the bundle

– Two pages explaining the difference between analysis and literary analysis

– One page on how to create an effective outline (what content should be included)

– An exercise using the “Ant and the Grasshopper” fable to help students analyze elements of plot, characterization, symbolism, theme, and setting.

– An answer sheet with detailed information

– Instructions on how to use the above information to focus a topic and write a thesis statement

– An outline activity – students need to complete an outline using a given thesis statement

– An answer key (with a possible outline) to help student compare their outline with this one.

The bundle includes 13 pages and two to three days worth of lessons.

This is a practical and simple way to guide students through the analytical process.
