We all know that literature and writing belong together like peanut butter and jelly, but what exactly should that look like? What is a literary analysis paper, and why do we write them? Does it harm our experience of a book by making us miserable, or can it be a helpful tool for enhancing our understanding?

There are some important tricks of the trade when it comes to crafting and defending a written argument about a work of literature, and some key factors to keep in mind as the teacher assigning such a project to your students. In the first Office Hours of the new year, we will be tackling this subject together. We know it sounds intimidating, but we promise that it doesn't have to be! With just a few essential pieces of information, your student can be worlds ahead when it's time for him to turn in his first college paper. So join us at 1:00 pm Pacific/ 4:00 Easter on January 19th, and we'll share a few secrets that we use behind the scenes in our own Online Academy!
