Introduction to Literature

Planning and Teaching a First-Year Course

Universitas Press
There is a difference between streamlining an approach to an Introduction to Literature course and dumbing down the material. Practical considerations are important when developing any course, and they certainly are in an introductory course. Instructors may need to deal with diverse, inexperienced students in short blocks of class time, possibly within contexts of high departmental expectations, even as they are cognisant of a need to preserve personal well being while balancing the daily demands of course delivery and marking. We learned over time to select topics and works carefully, and then to pack their presentation with rich and important elements relevant and interesting to a variety of students.
Sylvia Hunt holds a PhD in English Literature, specializing in 18th-century women's writing. Cynthia Parr holds degrees in English Literature and Education (focused on educational development for professors).
