Reflection: Essay Writing Writing a Literary Analysis of Maus (Day 2 of 2) - Section 2: Applying Knowledge: Student use their Combined Talents to Write a Literary Analysis


For the most part, I was satisfied with the essays I recieved from my students.  I believe they really needed more time to work on their strengths and weaknesses. The students who chose the analysis of survivors were more successful than the students who chose to write about images.  The essays on images became more of a description than an analysis.
