Text Analysis Assignments

As you'll see when you look through the assignment sheets collected here, teachers often sequence the early text analysis assignments to build increasing complexity into the tasks. Other teachers use the text analysis tasks in the first part of the semester to give students repeated practice with basically the same task. Students then collect their most effective analysis papers for evaluation in the mid-term portfolio. You may want to look at a teacher's syllabus next to the assignments to get a fuller sense of how the writing tasks fit into a teacher's conception of the course overall.
