Merican literature on a summary of a book and four critical articles that are related to book summary and opinions for each of the article
Students are expected to read their chosen selections in their entirety. Some of the selections in the textbook are excerpts, however. In such instances, the students are only responsible for reading the excerpts that are in the book and do not have to find and read the complete work.
The completed project consists of three major sections:
Section 1: Summary of the literary work
Section 2: Summaries of four critical articles/essays about the literary work
Section 3: Response to the literary criticism
Critical articles are articles that critique (or in other words, discuss), not summarize, the work. Students can find literary criticism in the following print sources: Introductions to books containing the literary selections, anthologies of critical essays, casebooks, and Norton critical editions of the literary selections. Also, the textbook contains extensive bibliographies at the end of the book and suggestions for further reading at the end of the introductory material for each author. Students can also access the collegeas online library databases, such as the Academic Search Premiere.
