Also, an excellent resource for my preservice teachers; using it in Methods to help students understand the importance of literary theory in lesson and unit planning.

While I don't know that everything in this book was as clear as it should've been, it was a really incredible resource that covered an assortment of the lenses used to read literature through. I really enjoyed the class activities and handouts provided in the appendix and will be sure to use a few of those in my classroom.
