Using "The Giving Tree" To Teach Literary Criticism.
Remler, Nancy Lawson
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v28 n1 p60-64 Sep 2000
Argues that introducing students to literary criticism while introducing them to literature boosts their confidence and abilities to analyze literature, and increases their interest in discussing it. Describes how the author, in her college-level introductory literature course, used Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree" (a children's book) to introduce literary criticism, increase enthusiasm for literature, and build confidence in making meaning.
