The College French Major in the "Now" Generation: Should We Be Teaching Literature?
Danner, G. Richard
Several reasons for continuing to emphasize literature as the "humanistic heart" of language instruction are developed in this paper. The arguments proposed are based on the following observations: (1) college teachers of second languages are trained primarily to teach literature; (2) literary study is a significant kind of learning; and (3) literature has traditionally been recognized to have an intrinsic value, and recognition of the need to study literature has been demonstrated by recent surveys of student attitudes concerning the importance of literature.
