This is an interactive PPT lecture. It is the culmination of hours I spent reading and researching literary criticism on The Road. The first page is a table of contents, and students have the choice to discuss which topic they find the most interesting: Dreams & Memories, Rituals, Cannibal Crop Circles, The Enigmatic Ely, Jesus in The Road, Aliens in The Road, and Food in The Road. A couple slides accompany each topic and include plenty of higher order discussion questions. The best place to teach this is after the Ely episode.
