    Week 3 - Apply a Lens - WRT201 Crosby

    Week 3 - Apply a Lens - WRT201 Crosby

    Overview

    This week we will learn about additional ways in which we can analyze a text. A work can be considered for its portrayal of gender, class, culture. Check out the link: “Read about Critical Approaches in Literature.” It gives us another way to see the story. By considering how gender is portrayed, for example, we are using a specific lens (feminist) with which to view the text. Try using this lens when reading “The Yellow Wallpaper” or “The Story of an Hour.”

    There will be a short quiz on “The Yellow Wallpaper”. Then you will write in your journal and apply a lens.

    Find a relaxing place to read this week's stories. "The Story of an Hour" is very short but excellent. "The Yellow Wallpaper" is longer but this is most student's favorite story. Remember to annotate and practice close reading. Enjoy reading some great literature!
