Product Description
Teach your students about the four primary sources of Western literature: fairy tales, Greek mythology, Bible stories, and Shakespeare's works, as explained by Thomas C. Foster in his game-changing literary analysis book, "How to Read Literature Like a Professor." This unit includes a 20-slide PowerPoint outlining Foster's book; plus, a 25-slide PowerPoint detailing Foster's explanation of the various different symbols and their meanings. A "Symbolism Matrix Chart" is included which can be used to identify and explain symbolism found in any reading passage.
In my classroom, I began the year with this unit, and then spent one quarter on each of the four sources, so 1st Quarter we focused on fairy tales in modern literature; 2nd Q = Greek mythology; 3rd Q = Bible stories and the influence found in modern lit; and 4th Q = Shakespeare's plays and his impact on modern lit.
My store has a a Greek Myth Unit and a Fairy Tale Unit available for purchase, and a FREE Bible Unit available for download. Be sure to get these additional supplementary units along with the "How to Read Literature Like a Professor" Study Unit together!
