British Writers; Modules for Teacher Corps.
Gilliard, Fred
This booklet, containing eight instructional modules on works by major British writers, can be used either within a lower-level literature course for non-English majors or in a survey course for English majors. The first four modules focus on works from the early English period through the Elizabethan Age: "Beowulf,""Sir Gawain and the Green Knight,""Everyman," and "Henry IV, Part I" (Shakespeare). The other four modules concentrate on selections from the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries, thematically examining the war between the sexes: "The Man of Mode" (G. Etherege), "School for Scandal" (R. Sheridan), "Wuthering Heights" (E. Bronte), and "Arms and the Man" (G.B. Shaw). The various activities in each module are designed to encourage familiarity with the terms, tools, and history of literature and to expose students to poetry, prose, and dramatic literature, as well as to literary criticism. Each module lists objectives and goals, prerequisites, assessment procedures, instructional activities, and suggested readings. Examples of forms for teacher records and evaluations are attached.
