Fiction and Nonfiction in the ESL/EFL Classroom: Does the Difference Make a Difference?
Horowitz, Daniel
English for Specific Purposes, v9 n2 p161-68 1990
Critically analyzes the arguments supporting the use of literature in the English-as-a-Second-Language classroom. The claims analyzed for using literature are (1) the "training vs. education" claim, (2) the "interpretive richness" claim, and (3) claims related to the connection between reading and writing about literature.
