This unit introduces students to some of the important approaches to literary criticism. Through reading, discussion, and written analysis of works of fiction, folktales, poetry, and essays, students develop awareness of the common characteristics and important differences within and among genres. While students are growing in their understanding and appreciation of literature, they are also developing skills for approaching and analyzing future readings; moreover, written assignments responding to the literature help students to develop and express in-depth ideas. The concept of cyclic patterns of change serves as a unifying theme in the unit, with explorations of cyclic patterns evident in the structure and themes of the literature selections. Interdisciplinary connections with science, history, and the arts are also explored through unit activities, to strengthen understanding of the concept and its role in our lives and experiences.
