Doing Literary Criticism by Tim Gillespie. In my "Teaching Reading" class in college, we had a mini-unit on using literary theory to give readers a purpose for reading. I found it to be mind-bogglingly useful in that and subsequent classes. Picking a literary theory provides students with a way to pick out key information. This is useful as students learn to read an entire text, and also when (as often) they're required to read a book they don't want to, or are stuck on.
