Analysis Development Template

copyright 2008 by Gary L. Pullman

Note: We recommend that you read our "Essay Patterns of Development" post before you read this post.

Analysis: Identify the parts that make up a whole and explain how each functions individually, how each is related to the other, and how they work together to serve a greater, common purpose (the function of the whole).

Topic: Story

Function of the Whole: A story recounts the actions of a character who struggles to attain a goal.

THESIS: The beginning of a story, which is known as the exposition, provides background information and sets the rest of story in motion; the middle, called the turning point, changes the protagonist’s fortune for better or worse; and the end, known as the resolution, determines the outcome of the conflict (the protagonist attains or fails to attain his or her goal).
Use this blank template to create your own thesis for an analytical essay:
