Kerner, Howard A.
Suggesting that instructors approach literature from a multidisciplinary life-based stance, this paper presents syllabi, pedagogical techniques, and a student essay which illustrates a life-based approach to literary themes. The first section of the paper deals with creative curricular re-packaging of great literature in which traditional course structure is supplemented by theme of genre-based courses. The second section of the paper begins with quoted substantiation from two recent authoritative sources and then focuses on some pedagogical techniques to enliven great literature for today's students. The third section of the paper is part of an illustrative student essay which applies literature as life to critical essay writing. (RS)
