This course is a focused study of the works of three to five authors. Offerings may include John Milton, William Butler Yeats, Toni Morrison, Virginia Woolf, William Faulkner, or other combinations of major writers of poetry and fiction. The course also gives attention to possible assessment tools to measure comprehension of literature studied, written about, and researched. Students explore different theories relevant to the variety of literature covered and may engage in collaborative communication through group dynamics (i.e., oral presentations, peer-review workshops, and pairings) that build students’ leadership roles.
