EDSITEment: Practical Criticism
This lesson plan from EDSITEment
emphasizes literary criticism skills such as comparing and contrasting, interpretation, and critical analysis. The instruction includes the description of an experiment that a British critic used to develop a step-by-step process for interpreting poetry. The lesson activities use this process in encouraging students to express their own judgment about poetry that they read. You will also find an extension of the lesson to be used as a class project.
