PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product contains:
(1) an introduction explaining the purpose and process of literary criticism or critiques (written broadly enough to relate to criticism of any art form),
(2) an editable version (you can add, just not take anything away) of this saved as a PowerPoint presentation ,
(3) a student worksheet guiding them through a critical review of ANY work of fiction,
(4) an editable version of the worksheet saved as a Microsoft Word document.

This product provides you with information to introduce and explain the process and a form for student application. You add a text of your choice to this (I use a short story with background information about the author), and you have a full mini-unit.

To explain the purpose and value critiquing the arts.
