Critical Theory is an excellent tool for teaching student how to conduct a literary analysis from multiple perspective. I created this packet because I have found most resource on critical theory to be a bit dense for my students. This packet contains an overview of critical theory, exploration of six different theories, a model of six critical theories applied to a well-known fairy tale, and a student exercise. This packet contains:
