Note:

This unit will only be offered subject to sufficient enrolment numbers

Introduction

This unit explores the many ways that literature can be utilised within a TESOL context.  Literature as a focus for English language teaching will include a range of texts such as poems, novels, non-fiction works, plays and short stories. Multi-modal texts such as film, television series, animation and visual texts will also be considered as texts for English language teaching.  Approaches to using literature in a TESOL context will include genre-based, critical, and post-colonial perspectives.
