Oh, hey mom! What's up!
Inside her son's bedroom, she notices him doing nothing.
Okay, mom! Coming.
Determine to teach her son something, she brings him to their mini library.
I will teach you all about "Literary Criticism". For you to appreciate literature and have a deeper interest towards reading.
Okay, sounds interesting. I'll try to listen.

Later, I'll also explain to you the Literary Periods that happened throughout the years.
It has many types to be explain, so come here, son. I will explain it further to you.
Okay, mom! I'll listen to your lesson. I think it will help me someday.
This is heavy, but I think it's worth it. I'll give it try.
It is a lesson in which her mom learned from college and she wants her son to learn it.
She gives her son an activity that will help him enhance what he learned a while ago.
Okay, mom. I'm ready.
I'll give you two literary pieces. The topic is all about "Alienation". I'm sure you'll love this activity, son
I think you're now ready, son. I'll give you an activity and you'll analyze the literature.
The other literary text explains Dr. Lazarus past experience as he became hopeless to himself.
It becomes successful as her son was able to analyzed what he read.
Mom, I'm done! The first literary text talks about being anti-social he was to others.
That's the reason why, they both experienced "alienation".
Now, let's go to the living room. I'll tell you the reason why I teach you this kind of lesson.
Well done, my son! You did a great job!
