15 Practical Ideas for Teaching Context in Literature contains 15 creative lesson plans for introducing the context of literature to give students a better understanding of what might have influenced an author when writing.

This is no standard author study! Rather, it is a way for students to make text-to-text, text-to-self, and text-to-text connections in a unique way, grounded in critical inquiry.

Teaching context in literature is a way to show students that authors are just ordinary people who have found their voices, and it encourages them to do the same, voicing their opinions as they complete a close read of the text.
