This article has come about due to a synthesis of my experience and research into English teaching pedagogy. Whenever I taught a text, I found that the best methodology to use was one that analysed the piece for the most affective elements that were present and constructed lessons around these elements. This conscious search for emotional content also leads to improved engagement with the language, characters and the plot of the story by the students.
