"THERE CAN BE NO DENYING that critical theory has now begun to affect undergraduate and graduate education in various disciplines at the nations educational institutions. And yet, surprisingly few of the courses dedicated to critical theory pair the theory being discussed with specific texts, allowing students to attempt initial interpretations within the parameters of a specific approach, nor does there exist an easily accessible source to guide undergraduate and graduate students who may seek help with the often-difficult ideas being discussed in their courses. My goal here has been to provide a resource for both undergraduate and graduate students who are beginning to learn critical theory, including guides to terms. The site includes sample applications, annotated links to existing web sites, and also more-in-depth modules on specific authors. Through the consistent use of HTML frames, I have attempted to move away from traditional textbooks by continually having individual terms only a mouse click away, thus allowing students to become familiar with individual terms at their own pace. The web allows definitions to stand side by side with interpretations, with introductions, with modules, or even with other definitions, allowing students always to stay grounded despite the difficulty of grasping some of the more abstruse concepts. I have also attempted to make this site of use to teachers at various levels who might be seeking interesting ways to introduce theory to their undergraduate or high-school students. (Check out the Lesson Plans link in each section.)"
