Tapping Students’ Interests to Develop Literary Analysis Skills

This article introduces a strategy for increasing student voice in English Language Arts (ELA) classes. A veteran teacher shares how passion blogging on topics of their choice helped students develop key analytical skills such as argument design, and use of evidence. This exercise provided scaffolding before moving on to analysis of complex literary texts, while also building student ownership and engagement. Any ELA teacher can try out this strategy early in the year.
