SAMPLE Literary Analysis Essays with RATIOCINATION GUIDE
This listing is for Mini-lesson #1 of my Literary Analysis Essay book-- sold separately.

For this activity, students read and analyze three sample student literary analysis essays using a ratiocination guide. They ratiocinate for the parts of the essay along with higher level vocabulary. They then answer reflection questions aimed at introducing students to the literary analysis essay.

This is an excellent activity for introducing students to the literary analysis essay. Students need to be exposed to a variety of sample essays before they begin writing one. These essays can serve as models for students throughout the writing process.
