Objective: I understand what Critical Theory is and can experience what it means to read the same work through different lenses. Agenda:
Entry Task: Get out your notebook and divide a new page in 1/2 and then split that 1/2 down the middle, so you have a space to write on the left and right an a space to write below.
Follow along to the prezi, listening to the artwork and taking notes on the two side of your paper as you go through the slides and listen to the songs.
After the songs, explain how your perspective different for each.
Read the quotes and add to your explanation; then review the description of critical theory provided concluding by explaining what it means to read through differing lenses in your own words.
Receive the Brief Overview of Lenses chart; look at the lens at a glance, and highlight those that are intriguing to you.
Look more closely at the Psychoanalytical lens and the Archetypal lens and take notes on each. Be starting to think about which you would prefer to read Hamlet through.
Exit Task: Tomorrow you will have Book Club because I am gone. You will have specific directions to follow, but you will also have time to select your lens for your Book Club Book. If you were to choose now, which one would you use? Circle it and be prepared to explain to your group why you think that lens is a good choice for your book. You do not have to all read through the same lens, but it may help to have to defend it to your group.
