Reading Class - Theme Analysis Workshop

Ask your students to show you their Theme Analysis Organizer on Google Classroom.  See how students are making great gains in their literary analysis and essay writing skills.  This past week students worked hard in their reading class's Theme Analysis Workshop.  Throughout the workshop, students developed top-notch thesis statements, found best evidence within the text, practiced using MLA parenthetical documentation, and developed analysis to support their claims.  While building their essay-writing skills, they also developed the ability to find a text's implied meanings.
