Part A addresses the idea of teaching literature and questions about what to teach and how to teach it. Part B outlines a variety of student-centered activities for use with literary works, and Part C demonstrates different techniques for working with complete texts. All activities have been used successfully and are presented with the conviction that literature has a valid place in general language learning. --From publisher's description.
