Dade County Public Schools, Miami, FL.
Developed as part of a high school quinmester unit on approaches to literary criticism, this guide provides the teacher with teaching strategies for an investigation of five major intellectual points of view from which literary works are analyzed and judged. A specific literary work (in novel, poem, short story, or other form) is discussed and analyzed from these various points of view. Areas of approach include moral, psychological, historical, biographical, sociological, and "new" criticism. The range of subject matter covers (1) a definition of literary criticism, (2) the identification and application of most commonly accepted approaches to literary criticism, and (3) the status of literary criticism in the 1970s. The guide is arranged by performance objectives with suggested teaching strategies listed under each objective. Appended is a list of student and teacher resources, including textbooks, references, films, and periodicals. (HOD)
