Annotated Bibliography
Boldt, Gail. “Resistance, Loss, and Love in Learning to Read: A psychoanalytic Inquiry.”
Research in the Teachings of English. Urbana, IL: National Council of Teachers
of English, 2006. 273-309. Web.
The next two sources are both from the same book, however they are articles written by
two different authors. I like this one in particular because it talks about the
psychoanalytic theory when dealing with the difficulties the author faced when his son
was learning how to read. I can connect this to the ES book because it also talks about
how the psychoanalytic theory affects ones ability to read, write and interpret texts.
Bressler, Charles E. Literary Criticism: An Introduction to Theory and Practice. 3rd ed.
Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice, 2002.
This source came from the ES book. I find it very helpful because it is a basic
introduction to the study of theory. It makes literary criticism and theory very simple to
someone who has never even heard of it. It breaks it down to the eleven basic schools of
theory and even includes sample student essays.
Chapman, Thandeka K. “Interrogating Classroom Relationships and Events: Using
Portraiture and Critical Race Theory in Education Research.” Educational
Researcher, Vol. 36, No. 3 (2007): 156-162. Web. 1 March 2010.
This source came from a search I conducted on JSTOR. I find this article very interesting.
It discusses the critical race theory and the usage of portraiture in classrooms, specifically
in urban schools. I like how the author outlined each of her points and titled each one so
its clear where she defines the critical race theory and other methodologies. I plan to
utilize this source as an example of how race and classrooms in elementary schools at
such a young age, directly effects how the child interprets texts.
Elias, Amy J. “Critical Theory and Cultural Studies.” English Studies: An Introduction to
the Discipline(s). Ed. Bruce McComiskey. Urbana, IL: National Council of
Teachers of English, 2006. 223-274. Print.
This source is the most valued source of them all and it is the assigned textbook, English
Studies. The book takes somewhat of a neutral side to all the methodologies of critical
theory. I like how it introduces the topics and ideas of each one and the historical
background of them all. This source will serve as my foundation for the paper. I also
hope to utilize some of the sources in the works cited page as well.
Fairbanks, Colleen M. and Ariail, Mary. “The Role of Social and Cultural Resources in
Literacy and Schooling: Three Contrasting Cases.” Research in the Teachings of
English. Urbana, IL: National Council of Teachers of English, 2006. 355-372.
One of the main things that brought me to this source is that it came from the same
publishers who published the ES book. This source doesn’t really address a particular
methodology, but it does talk about social and cultural influences that affect children’s
desires to read. I found it interesting how they propose that teachers need to recognize
students’ abilities and weaknesses and use that to formulate a lesson plan to literacy. This
will prepare them for future schooling and being better adapted to society in general.
Greenblatt, Stephen, and Giles Gunn, ed. Redrawing the Boundaries: The Transformation
of English and American Literary Studies. New York: MLA, 1994.
This is actually one of the sources that the ES book uses. I like this source because it talks
about the changes made over time with English studies. I found it interesting because it is
much of the stuff we have discussed in class. I plan to use this book in my essay by
including the insight of literary studies in school.
Hammer, Rhonda, and Kellner, Douglas, eds. Media/Cultural Studies: Critical
Approaches. New York, New York: Peter Lang Publishing, Inc, 2009. Print.
This source is actually the textbook assigned for my Communication course (Pop
Culture). What made me think of using this textbook is that we talk a lot about media
influences and culture of everyday life. The book presents methods of critical, cultural
and media studies. I also like how the book is new and up to date. It was published just
last year so it includes influences from Facebook, Youtube, TV, and other new media
devices that influence how society thinks and acts. I plan to use this book for getting a
more modern twist to my paper and incorporating how things have changed and grown
since literary studies was first introduced.
Mitchell, Angelyn, ed. Within the Circle: An Anthology of African American Literary
Criticism from the Harlem Renaissance to the Present. Durham, NC: Duke
University Press. 1994. Print.
This source is a collection of essays on African American literacy criticism during
specific time eras. I like how it covers works during a variety of times, that way we can
see a change in works based on what was happening in society, such as works from
Harlem renaissance, civil rights movement, black arts movement and much more. I also
like how they include the black feminist theory which is important because it connects
both the AA culture theory with the feminist theory. I plan to use this source when
discussing the African American side of critical theory and how it affects literacy and
retaining literary information.
Patai, Daphne, and Will H. Corral. Theory’s Empire: An Anthology of Dissent. New
York: Columbia UP, 2005.
This source is another anthology of essays that discuss critical theory and literary
criticism. I like this source in particular because it is completely anti-critical theories. It
serves as a devil’s advocate. I will be using this source to mention my rebuttals or
counter-arguments on the issue.
Tyson, Lois. Critical Theory Today: A User-Friendly Guide. New York & London:
Garland Publishing, Inc. 1999. Print.
This source is a simple version to critical theory. It sums up all the criticisms like
Psychoanalytic Criticism, Marxist Criticism, and even Postcolonial and African
American Criticism. This book is basically a “one stop shop” for me. I wouldn’t have to
look much else for basic information on the issues of critical theory. I also like how the
book uses one example of the same text to draw from which is F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The
Great Gatsby. I like how Tyson uses the same book, that I am also familiar with, to apply
all the various techniques. I actually planned on finding a similar piece and doing the
same thing. I plan on using this source for its general ideas on critical theory as well as its
section on African American criticism.
