I love the dual purpose of this course. Reading the literature and exploring different critical perspectives.  This is a site I will use in my Master's level Disciplinary Foundations of Literature.  And I am thrilled to move beyond the discussion (which is almost inevitable) about whether Conrad's novel is "racist" or not.  Some of the theories can deal with that issue appropriately--post colonial and reader response theory, for example--but it is not the only focus for discussion.

This is a wonderful and complete resource - a thoughtfully crafted webquest to guide students to analyze the well-known "Heart of Darkness" from a critical perspective - and students can each choose the critical perspective they prefer (feminism, post-colonial, deconstruction, reader-response, etc). Resources are provided for each perspective, and then questions for the assignment are ready-made for you. Just assign it and grade their papers :o)
