Doll's Pedagogical Theory and Its Enlightenment on British and American Literature Teaching
Gang, Xu
English Language Teaching, v8 n3 p104-110 2015
Due to the outmoded teaching method and the popularity of utilitarianism nowadays, the marginalization of British and American literature courses has become a prominent problem for the education of English majors in colleges and universities, but the American postmodern curriculum theorist, Prof. William E. Doll, Jr.'s pedagogical theory, which advocates the cultivation of students' comprehensive ability in the process of teaching, can offer great enlightenment on British and American literature teaching. So this article will apply Doll's pedagogical theory on teaching mode and academic evaluation to explore a more dynamic and instructive teaching method for British and American literature course so as to give full play to this important subject for English majors for the cultivation of their comprehensive ability, both language skills and creative thinking on literature analysis.
