Introducing literary criticism can be challenging, and the resources I could find online were either too simple or too academic. For that reason, I created this set of charts to introduce the basics of reader-response, New Criticism or formalist criticism, historical and biographical criticism, New Historicism, psychological criticism, and feminist and Marxist criticism. This resource includes 3 charts, so you have 3 different styles for introducing lit. crit. to your students. Use the blank chart for lecture notes or independent research and review; use the partial chart for emphasizing application to any text; or use the complete chart as a handout or review. Choose the chart and style that works for you and your students, or use different charts for different learners. All three charts are ready to print and use in your classroom today!
