Literary Analysis

Paragraph Response (RTL)

Terms to Know

topic sentence
Topic Sentence
  • The opening sentence for each body paragraph; identifies what will be discussed in the paragraph, without giving an example
  • If you are writing a paragraph response, this is the first sentence of your paragraph
    • Identify title and author
    • Answer question(s) posed in prompt
for example
For example…
  • Prompt: Please identify and analyze a major theme from LenseyNamioka’s story, “All-American Slurp.”
  • TS: In the story, “All-American Slurp,” by LenseyNamioka, the characters’ struggles to fit in convey that when people are confronted or immersed in a foreign culture, it is common to make embarrassing mistakes.
concrete detail evidence
Concrete Detail/Evidence
  • An example from the story that supports the topic sentence; includes paraphrased information as well as a direct passage; before including the quote, provide context/background information; embed the quote in a sentence
for example1
For example…
  • TS: In the story, “All-American Slurp,” by LenseyNamioka, the characters’ struggles to fit in convey that when people are confronted or immersed in a foreign culture, it is common to make embarrassing mistakes.
  • CD: For example, when invited to the Gleason’s home for a buffet dinner, the Lin’s pull up chairs to the buffet table to eat. Mrs. Gleason whispers to the Lin’s, “This is a buffet dinner. You help yourself to some food and eat it in the living room” (120).
commentary analysis
Commentary/Analysis
  • Discussion of the concrete detail in connection with the topic sentence; commentary explains, interprets and analyzes examples from story; commentary does not provide examples from the story; commentary comes from you, not the story
for example2
For example…
  • TS: In the story, “All-American Slurp,” by LenseyNamioka, the characters’ struggles to fit in convey that when people are confronted or immersed in a foreign culture, it is common to make embarrassing mistakes.
  • CD: For example, when invited to the Gleason’s home for a buffet dinner, the Lin’s pull up chairs to the buffet table to eat. Mrs. Gleason whispers to the Lin’s, “This is a buffet dinner. You help yourself to some food and eat it in the living room” (120).
  • CM: This causes the Lin’s to immediately retreat to the couch and not eat dinner, as they are mortified. It must have been humiliating for the Lins to seat themselves at the buffet table in front of everyone. Clearly the Lins are unfamiliar with some American dining customs, proving that it can be difficult and sometimes embarrassing to adapt to a new culture.
closing sentence
Closing Sentence
  • The final sentence of your paragraph; sums up the paragraph and brings it to a close
for example3
For example…
  • TS: In the story, “All-American Slurp,” by LenseyNamioka, the characters’ struggles to fit in convey that when people are confronted or immersed in a foreign culture, it is common to make embarrassing mistakes.
  • CD: For example, when invited to the Gleason’s home for a buffet dinner, the Lin’s pull up chairs to the buffet table to eat. Mrs. Gleason whispers to the Lin’s, “This is a buffet dinner. You help yourself to some food and eat it in the living room” (120).
  • CM: This causes the Lin’s to immediately retreat to the couch and not eat dinner, as they are mortified. It must have been humiliating for the Lins to seat themselves at the buffet table in front of everyone. Clearly the Lins are unfamiliar with some American dining customs, proving that it can be difficult and sometimes embarrassing to adapt to a new culture.
  • It is easy to see that not knowing American customs causes the Lin’s great embarrassment in social situations.
