All in a Word: Literature in Language Teaching.
This guide introduces and accompanies a set of four videotapes (not included here) designed for classroom use in the training of teachers of English as a Second Language. The first tape provides an overview of approaches to the teaching of literature, and the other three videotapes present examples of practice, each containing an edited version of a complete lesson built around a piece of literature. The first chapter of this guide consists of a series of quotations about the relationship of literature to culture, language, and experience; it describes two approaches to literature teaching, one emphasizing reading as a precursor to creative writing and the other focusing on how the experience of writing affects the interpretive task of reading. Three subsequent chapters are guides to the three lesson tapes and give pre-viewing, during-viewing, and post-viewing class activities and exercises. Other chapters provide a guide to the sequence and timing on the tapes, texts used in the tapes, and a brief bibliography of additional resources for teachers. (MSE)
