Teaching Lit. in SSL Classroom

Teaching Literature in the SSL Classroom
* This course is taught in Buenos Aires, Argentina. *

Why teaching how to read Literature? According to Daniel Link, Literature connects readers with the infinity (needed for developing knowledge), with love (the skill of any effective teacher), and with desire (that nurtures imagination). This course, designed for graduate students in Spanish and Education, works the teaching of literature across the middle and secondary school levels. Its perspective is both practical and theoretical, examining topics that include why we read, the kinds of readings Spanish teachers are trying to create and effective instructional strategies for teaching literature. The course is designed around 3 core themes: the purposes for teaching literature; the content for literature curriculum; and pedagogical approaches for teaching literature. These topics will be explored through a variety of texts, cultural artifacts, and critical perspectives.
