An introduction to literary history and literary movements

HDOsmundsen 2017-02-26 17:22:20

This powerpoint functions as an introduction to how literary history is constructed, and what constitutes a literary movement. It was designed for native-speaking English students at Middle School level, but could work with High Schoolers as well.

The aim is to get the students to understand how literary movements work, and provide an essential building block for future literary analysis.

It features an historical overview and basic introduction to The Enlightenment, Romanticism and Realism.

The presentation includes a home learning exercise as well as an in-class task.

In my class the presentation covered a week's (four) worth of lessons.

The present printable, downloadable handout is meant for high school students and elementary school students at Intermediate (B1), Upper-intermediate (B2), Advanced (C1) and Proficient (C2) level. It is excellent for developing your groups' Listening and Reading skills. It centers around the theme of Art, Books and reading and History.
