Product Description
Give your students the language and background to approach a single text through a variety of literary criticism perspectives. This resource gives an overview of the main literary criticism "schools" and guiding questions for them to ask themselves about a text. It includes two different versions of graphic organizers for students to use when reading a short story. They view a single work through all 8 lenses in order to get a well rounded perspective of the work as a whole. I used this with my AP English students with great success, and the graphic organizers spurred great, deep conversations. The sample is over Kate Chopin's "Story of an Hour" but the activity easily generalizes to any work of literary merit.
Perspectives are: reader response, formal, feminist, moral, marxist, historical/biological, archetypal/mythological, and psychological.
