Students get up and move around, working with a partner to choose a text from a set then learning about literary criticism and applying certain theories to their text. This activity introduces students to the idea of literary criticism and lets the teacher choose short texts (or use the ones included) which makes this activity fit into any unit.
Help students consider new perspectives while reading and begin thinking critically about each text they are exposed to!
What Is Included:
- All Materials are in a Word document so you can customize them to fit your purposes!
- Graphic organizer for students
- Eight short stories from varied authors and on a range of topics
- Stations with a general explanation of each literary criticism (6 in total) and a sample of the criticism applied to a popular text
