Redefining What Analysis Can Mean For Your Students

E09249_Marchetti_ODell_Bookcover_2391.jpg

For teachers who use analytical writing in their classrooms, the thought of grading essays devoid of passion can be tedious and painful. However, by introducing a new definition of text, the dreaded five paragraph essay can become something entirely different that your students will want to write.

Here, authors Allison Marchetti & Rebekah O'Dell explain how they have reshaped the way their students interact with analytical writing by redefining what a text can be. By looking at literary analysis from a new perspective, Allison and Rebekah give us the opportunity to help young writers who deserve so much more than the same boring literary analysis assignment we've all been writing for decades.
