Type: Lesson/Unit Plan

Overview:

Students prepare an already published scholarly article for presentation, with an emphasis on identification of the author's thesis and argument structure, as well as an examination of source integration (the critic's engagement with primary and secondary source information). The class first analyzes a sample article of literary criticism and discusses how to annotate it for presentation. Each student then uses an online database to access an appropriate article of literary criticism connected to a work of literature they have already read as a class assignment. They then analyze the article and prepare the article for presentation by highlighting key elements of its structure and content. Finally, they present the article to their peers.
