This slideshow guides students through an analysis of Alice Walker's poem, "Women." It is designed to introduce advanced analysis by asking critical thinking questions to students as they explore the poem line by line. Slide notes are included in the powerpoint version and are collected in a document to act as a teacher's guide. This lesson is designed to take 15-30 minutes but several writing prompts and creative project opportunities are included in this resource. Each file is available in both PDF and Microsoft Office form and is fully editable.
