Introduction to Literacy Criticism

As learners continue to examine a short story of their choice, they take some time to look at analysis completed by others on the same story. In the eleventh lesson in a series of fourteen, pupils explore various sites for literary criticism to summarize and reflect upon by blogging specific information listed in the plan. This is mostly self-guided work, and will require access to the Internet for all pupils during class.
