Realising that my last post was dreadfully dry I am hoping this helps. Our department has come up with several methods to teach analytical paragraphs.
For a long time it was PETER: Point Evidence Technique Explain Reader Response.
A colleague came up with the Shrek method, layers of meaning like an onion.
I developed a ‘taxonomy’ of analysis, the bottom of the triangle being a simple explanation upwards.
Another colleague used the ‘left hand’ clip to develop Sherlocking.
Our fantastic NQT developed SWAT or Single Word And Technique.
I thought to combine these latter two and developed the theme of ‘interrogating’ a text.
Maybe one of these methods will help your classes.
