Teaching Critical Thinking in the English Literature Survey Courses.
Page, Helen Ward
English literature survey courses can and should be taught as part of junior and community college curriculums. However, since students in any one course may have different levels of learning and ability, it is important to structure courses so that students do not face tasks that they are unable to successfully complete. Teachers should be aware that theory can be adapted for practical classroom application in six specific areas: (1) intrinsic worth of the subject matter, (2) content choices within the course, (3) provision of background and context for lectures, (4) class discussion and questioning, (5) writing assignments, and (6) testing. When teachers understand students' learning levels and styles, they are less likely to be frustrated with their students. (DF)
