Prose Close Analysis

Hi folks! Welcome back!

Today, we are going to review the two types of essays we have taught you in this class, both of which will be on the AP exam in May (as well as your final exam).

Let’s use this chart to compare the two: close versus open analysis.

Next, we will read a passage called “Cherry Bomb.” As you read, annotate.  We will be sharing.

Now let’s review what to specifically look for when analyzing prose, as well as the types of prompts to expect for prose analysis.

A Doll’s House is also written in prose, but your essay is an open analysis. Be sure to review the chart and rubric to ensure you are writing in the proper format.
