    Literature is so much more than a collection of terms and assignments; recognizing that the value of literature is not in the "practical" realm, but in the realm of ideas and beauty and being, Literature Alive brings students the tools to get at the deepest levels of writing. Teaching students a variety of approaches to a piece, as well as providing them creative outlets for addressing how it has affected them, students will learn the basics of literary criticism and how to apply it. Lessons include sample lessons based off of a book with an introduction, procedure (including references to any reproducibles), reading, objectives, questions to ask, related assignments, and questions based on the primary theme. Thematic concepts covered include context (biographical, historical, anthropological, religious, etc.), classification, the writer's tools (including tone, figures of speech & symbols), themes and ideas, elements of a work, reactions to the text, comparisons and more. Over 60 reproducible forms encourage engaged writing, as well as imaginary maps within literature, excerpts, and response exercises are included. 263 indexed pages, softcover.
