Writing an Analysis Essay: Introducing the Writing Prompt and the Model Essay

A model analysis essay provides writers with an opportunity to examine a response to the end-of-unit assessment writing prompt. Scholars define key words in the prompt and discuss how the model essay meets the demands in the prompt. Pairs then use a Linking the Prompt to the Essay worksheet and the model essay to discuss ideas for their own work.
