This course will involve the student as a whole person in the classroom, allow for genuine response and develop student autonomy. There are no pre-determined answers to some of the designed tasks. Students will be encouraged to offer their individual interpretation or response instead of looking to the instructor for confirmation of “correct” answers. Discussions will be conducted through group and pair work so that students can negotiate the reconstruction of meaning with the text in an interactive way. Course requirements include active class attendance, intensive reading, enthusiastic participation in pair and group work, timely completion of assignments and critical presentation of course-related themes.
