Description - Literature and Language Teaching by Gillian Lazar
Literature and Language Teaching is for teachers and trainers who want to incorporate literature into the language classroom. It can be used as a resource by trainers working with groups of teachers, by teacher development groups or by teachers working on their own. Literature and Language Teaching contains tasks and activities which: - encourage reflection on some of the issues and debates involved in using literature in the language classroom - explore different approaches to using literature with teenage and adult learners at all levels - suggest criteria for selecting and evaluating materials for classroom use - identify some of the distinctive features of novels, short stories, poems and plays so that these can be successfully exploited in the classroom - provide a wide range of practical ideas and activities for developing materials which teachers can use with their own learners - encourage the observation and assessment of lessons using literacy texts - draw on literary texts in English by a variety of authors from all over the world. Each section is designed to be self-contained so that users can select what is most relevant to their purpose.
A key to the tasks and activities is provided, as well as guidelines for teacher trainers which suggest different ways of using the activities as part of a training programme.
