Last week, I promised more details on using the workshop approach to teach literary analysis. I haven’t forgotten you!
And, so that you won’t have to wait to hear all we have in store, next week we will celebrate our very own Literary Analysis Blog Blast Week. Here’s the lineup:
Monday, April 27: Ways to Think About Mentor Texts for Literary Analysis Workshops
Wednesday, April 29: Technique-Based Analysis Studies — one kind of analysis workshop, with suggestions for mentor texts, mini-lessons, and samples of student writing.
Friday, May 1: A second sample unit for a technique-based study
Monday, May 4: Literature-Based Analysis Studies — another kind of analysis workshop, with a sample unit.
Wednesday, May 6: Take-Aways, Discoveries, and Next Steps for Literary Analysis Workshops
We hope that you will join us each day as we tackle a topic that is so central to high school classrooms!
