On Reading Well

Fall 2018 quarter

Taught by

English, writing, literature

This course will help students to develop clearer and more comprehensive understandings of literary texts, as well as to forge a more rewarding relationship with reading in general. In a supportive group environment, students will explore a range of reading strategies, including textual analysis, background research, response and summary writing, and recitation. Then they will apply these tools to an in-depth study of several works of nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature . Titles under consideration for Fall 2018 include Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights,  James Joyce's  Dubliners,  Virginia Woolf's  To the Lighthouse, and John Steinbeck's The Moon Is Down . Our overall goal is to become more resourceful, effective, and insightful readers.
