ENG 506G - Theory and Practice of Teaching Literature


This seminar considers ways of helping students read effectively, with appreciation and enjoyment, a variety of texts (such as fiction, poetry, essays, and non-print texts). The course engages participants in critical examination of their own experiences as readers, current theory concerning effective approaches to teaching textual literacy, and methods of applying this theory to their own practice. Attention is given to instructional strategies for addressing reading deficiencies. While focused on approaches to teaching English language arts in secondary schools, the course is also appropriate for and open to students interested in teaching at any level.

Prerequisites: Graduate or advanced undergraduate standing and permission of instructor.
Credits: 4
