Literary Analysis Essay, Introduction to Lit. Analysis Essay Writing, CCSS

Help students dig into the elements of literary analysis essay writing with this MASSIVE collection of tools organized into an efficient and effective nine-day writing unit.

Using an animated short film on YouTube and a classic short story as source material, students will see how introductory, body, and concluding paragraphs are built. They’ll learn step-by-step building block formulas and deconstruct sample essays. By the end of the unit, students will have the tools they’ll need to be able to build a well-organized essay focusing on depth of analysis (rather than basic plot summary) for any future piece of literature the teacher wishes to assign.
