Essay Writing & Literary Analysis Paragraph Format

0.00

This handout gives students a well-developed body paragraph example for a literary analysis essay that uses textual evidence from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.

Below the example paragraph, it outlines the parts of the paragraph as follows: topic sentence, evidence #1, commentary, evidence #2, commentary, summary sentence (each with brief descriptions). The paragraph is ratiocinated to align with the outline at the bottom so that students can easily identify the parts of the paragraph in the example.

This is an excellent tool for students to use throughout the Writing Process to make sure they are integrating the necessary parts of the paragraph in an organized and effective way! It is also a nice tool to use for revision purposes so that students can label the parts of their own paragraphs to check for the necessary components.
