Open your students' minds to the vast possibilities of themes and theory in literature.

Make learning about critical theory engaging
and intellectually rewarding.

One of the most exciting parts of teaching literary themes and theory is seeing your students analyze a work of literature from a new perspective.

Each Prestwick House Multiple Critical Perspectives guide introduces your students to three critical theories and provides activities to examine the work you are studying from each perspective - a perfect format to help students at any level think about what they are reading in new and interesting ways.

As they work through each title-specific guide, your students will become practiced in approaching texts from various angles and expand their critical thinking strategies.

Every Multiple Critical Perspectives guide will also help your students prepare for the types of critical analyses they'll be asked to perform in college. You'll be amazed to hear your students talk about politics, class divisions, the complexity of the human mind, and more-and what high school student doesn't love applying what they learn in class to real-world issues?
