Structuring an Analytical Essay for MacbethQuick View

Structuring an Analytical Essay for Macbeth

Targeted at KS4 pupils, the adaptable writing frame provides pupils with a guided structure (with arrows) about how they can build a convincing analytical argument through each sentence. Each sentence is connected with an arrow that shows pupils how their analytical response follows a structure; in following the arrows pupils realize how they must begin with a topic sentence to evidence, to analysis then the reader's response and concluding the writer's intentions. The structure is modeled and pupils are given opportunities to follow the structure and analyse alternative extracts independently for the entire lesson. This works great in group work and independent tasks that lead to presentations. The analytical structure is adaptable to different texts and provides a great scaffold for all analytical writing tasks.
