Product Description

How does one keep classic books alive for young people today and teach them that literature is instructional and delightful? How does the teacher foster a classroom environment that encourages student participation and promotes enjoyment so that teenagers learn to appreciate literary study? More specifically, how can literature teachers cover centuries of world literature with students who dont appreciate why they should read material written long ago about people and issues that appear to be irrelevant to life today in a language that seems esoteric? The author of this series of high school teaching guides addresses these issues.

How to Teach World Literature: A Practical Teaching Guide provides a detailed resource for teachers or anyone interested in an in-depth study of the subject. This third book in the series covers world literature from the ancient Greeks and Romans to contemporary works. Included are suggestions for cultivating a love for literature, teaching techniques, detailed analyses of each work, questions for review and test questions with suggested responses, essay topics, audio-visual aids, classroom handouts, and recommended books that enhance teaching.

The author emphasizes two basic reasons for teaching literature. It is instructional and delightful. This book provides a comprehensive methodology for teaching the subject that a teacher could apply to one years lesson plans without further investment in time. Other books in this series are titled How to Teach British Literature: A Practical Teaching Guide and How to Teach American Literature: A Practical Teaching Guide.
