We have analyzed literature orally for years as part of our regular coursework.
I have made many lame attempts to methodically teach the literary analysis essay and have not been AT ALL successful. I have used both purchased and free things.
Ds will enter his final semester of our homeschooling journey in January. This is one of the things I want to really help him with. He has a huge phobia about having to write a literary analysis paper in college and not being able to do it.
Writing is the bane of his existence.
He actually is a very entertaining writer. I know...not helpful for those dreaded academic type papers. He has great grammar and spelling and a wonderful writer's voice.
If anyone has a suggestion for a quick, painless lesson plan, workbook, whatever to help teach this step by step, I'd be most appreciative!
