Methods of Teaching Literature in the Secondary School    1230-1345 TR

This course will provide theoretically-based, yet practical ways to integrate literature, reading, and media literacy in a language arts classroom. The course centers on creating a literature unit and rationale that builds on a well-planned language arts class. Students will gain an understanding of current literary and pedagogical theory and its applications by reading and responding to literary and secondary texts. Grades will be based on weekly responses, presentations, a unit and rationale, as well as active class participation and completion of a professional portfolio. Live-text submissions are a required component of the course. (Group 1)
