Please remember: you must use evidence from the LYRICS to support your claim related to what the song is about- on the front side. The evidence you use on the back should be from the video. This evidence should relate to your claim about how well the video matched what you thought the song would be about. Evidence from the video- not the lyrics- belongs on the back side.

Literary Analysis Paper
Here's what you will be expected to do on Monday:
1. identify a theme in "Thank You Ma'm"
2. support your theme with textual evidence.
3. relate the theme to everyday life.
So, let's start by sharing the evidence we have generated for each of our possible themes. You should decide on a theme now and think about
Finding textual evidence
For each of the themes we came up with, a small group of you will generate some textual evidence.
I will give you 15 minutes and expect you to come up with 3-5 good pieces of textual evidence to support your assigned theme, including page numbers.

Your evidence should be gathered. Prepare to share.
Literary Analysis writing
Steps in the Writing Process
1. Choose a text- mostly, in school, this is done for you.

2. Note your responses- Yes!! This is important. Your "gut reactions" or initial responses to the text can help you identify key ideas to include in your analysis.

3. Think about audience and purpose- who will you be writing for and for what reason? In school, your audience is often your teacher. Your purpose is to demonstrate your ability to analyze a text in response to a given prompt.

4. Develop a thesis statement (called "controlling idea" in your packet). This is essential. This is the frame on which your essay will hang. This is the shape you want your thoughts to take, on paper. We will talk about this more.

5. Gather evidence-- we did this part together for this essay.

6. Draft.
7. Revise.
8. Relax!
Thesis statements
The thesis statement or controlling idea of your essay is the idea you intend to prove through your writing.

A good way to do this is to THINK "In this essay, I am going to show that..."

the completion of your sentence will be your thesis statement. However, do NOT include the "In this essay I am going to show that..." in your writing.
Literary analysis essay format
Introduction:
"hook"
title and author
brief summary of story
thesis statement
Body 1
restatement of theme in story
evidence to support theme

For this essay, your thesis will need to include a statement about what THEME you believe the story "Thank You M'am" expresses AND how that theme can be widely applied to everyday life.
For example:

"The movie The Wizard of Oz expresses the theme that many of the things we desire can be found within us. This theme is useful in helping people to understand how to pursue their desires more effectively.
Body 2
reiteration of theme
examples of how the theme can be applied to everyday life
Conclusion-- we will talk about this later. Conclusions are difficult. You can restate, but there are other options, too.
