Students will be introduced to different aspects of narrative texts including plot, character, point of view, setting, irony, language, etc. and will learn to critically analyze these aspects using the proper terminology. 4. Students will write regular journals in which they reflect critically on their reading of narrative texts. 5. Students will analyze a short story and will demonstrate their understanding of narrative fiction by presenting aspects of the story in class. 6. Students will strengthen their overall skills in reading, analyzing and discussing works of fiction.

課程概述

To introduce three major western literary genres (fiction, poetry, drama) over a 3-semester course, and to strengthen students in reading, analyzing, and discussing works of literature from a discerning and critical standpoint. In each of three semesters students are introduced to both representative and non-traditional texts in fiction, poetry and drama respectively. Students read closely, think critically, and evaluate texts chosen to elucidate critical ideas introduced in class. Class meetings include instructor-led textual examination, student-generated discussion, and individual or group presentations of selected works.
