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. In my 21 years of teaching High School English, I have repeatedly noticed that students often have difficulty in knowing how to analyze and use the information to write with a purpose in essay form. This step-by-step guide for high school students simplifies the process and gives students and teachers all of the tools they need to become successful literary critics.
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.
