Overview

This bestseller was the first text to specifically address the challenges of teaching critical theory in high school literature classrooms. Since its original publication, the author has worked with hundreds of teachers and students to update and refine the lessons she presents. This completely revised Second Edition now features:

A new introductory chapter that focuses on ideology and literary theory.

A new chapter on using literary theory with diverse learners.

An expanded discussion of gender, including new activities.

A new postcolonial lens that will help students read such classics as Things Fall Apart.

An amplified focus on cultural texts, with new material on helping students think critically about music videos, websites, advertisements, films, and television shows, and two new activities for analyzing a contemporary movie.

Many new additions to the appendix of activities.
