17 October: Essay Review TFA Theme Analysis Essay


I can reflect on my previous writing and write a detailed, analytical essay exploring a universal theme within a novel (RL 2 & W4).

Entry Task:

As you come into class, we will discuss your previous thematic analysis essay by revisiting the rubric and an example essay. After our discussion, your previous essay from our Current Worldview unit will be returned to you.

For three assessment points, reflect on your previous essay; consider what was discussed about the essay and the rubric and view your rubric score. In a private comment in the Google Classroom assignment, answer the following questions:

  • Do you agree with your rubric score? Why or why not?

  • What is your goal for your next essay based on your previous score and our discussion?

  • If you did not write an essay, share an honest reason you did not write one, what is your motivation for trying our next essay, and explain what your goals are for our next essay.

What’s Going On:

Today we will go over your unit essay. Start by going over the prompt, select a focus theme, and move through the provided template to plan your essay. Using this guide will allow you to spend time on detailed analysis and show your best writing.

Exit Task:

Find a good pausing point for today; we will have a work day tomorrow.
