This bundled unit contains three carefully scaffolded lessons (Webquest and presentations, group analysis of Where the Wild Things Are, and independent film study of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz) for introducing students to literary lenses. Additionally, five independent activities are provided based on the following texts: The Nose, The Metamorphosis, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Dead Men’s Path, and The Yellow Wallpaper. A summative activity is also provided at the end of the unit.
Most importantly, your kids will have FUN participating in these rigorous lessons. These lessons have been refined over the last three years and have proven to be engaging and instructional. Adding literary lenses to your instruction will improve your rigor immensely.
I have used these lessons with both general and honors sophomores; the lessons would also work well for juniors and seniors of all levels. The general students may need more support and guidance along the way, but, in the end, they will be very proud of the intellectual conversations in which they have participated.

How to earn TPT Credits:
"Earn TpT Credits for purchases on TpT. You get one TpT Credit for every $ you spend on TpT. Thing is, you only get the Credits after you Provide Feedback -- both a fair rating and a fair comment -- on the items that you purchase. We will round up for you, too! If you provide fair feedback on a $4.75 item, you will earn 5 credits. Every 100 Credits is worth $5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth $2.50, for example."--TPT Credits Page
