LIT 6276 Teaching College Literature
What are we doing when we undertake the pedagogical challenge of teaching literature in college? This class will study a variety of responses to that question, both theoretical examinations and practical approaches. At the same time, we will work on developing and articulating our own pedagogical methodologies and philosophies. Students will observe a literature class, discuss their own classroom experiences as students, teaching assistants, and/or instructors, and present a teaching demonstration on a particular literary text, differentiating introductory and advanced levels and surveys from more specialized seminars. Students will finally produce a teaching portfolio consisting of syllabi, assignments, and activities for a literature course and a teaching philosophy that addresses issues such as diversity and inclusivity, canonical vs. nontraditional texts, and teaching difficult and controversial material. We will also practice cogent responses for interview questions about teaching, and we will share our portfolios to build a library of pedagogical resources.
