Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: engage in literary interpretation through discussion of a range of texts from a variety of genres. Some topics addressed include form, voice, structure, and technique and their individual implications on literary texts. Throughout the semester, students progressively acquire skills that shape their critical and analytical thought processes and introduce them to the rudiments of multi-leveled interpretation and the search for a deeper understanding of text.


Students learn to identify the characteristics and functions of the various rhetorical devices and figures of speech, examining how the synthesis and implementation of these components formulate great literary works. Through consistent study of the use of setting, character, plot, theme, symbolism, point of view, voice, etc., students become fluent in recognizing the organization of various literary genres such as short story, poetry, exposition or essay, and become proficient in producing responsive writings. Subsequently, students learn to prepare and strategies for the production of a projected discourse.
