Introduction to the English 10 Toolkit
As a result of the undergraduate meetings of 2000-2001, it was decided that the following statement be used as a guideline for teachers of English 10:
"English 10 should teach students to interpret a variety of literary works, including poetry, enabling them to participate in the discourse of literary studies. In practical terms, the course will teach students to do close readings, to develop an interpretation of a text, to use evidence from the text to support their interpretations, and to shape essays appropriate to upper-division literature classes. In addition, instructors may also wish to teach students how historical context affects the meaning of a text, how to read critical essays and use them in their own interpretive essays, how to revise their own writing, and how different critical approaches (or theories) ask different questions of a text and produce different interpretations. Students will be expected to develop their writing throughout the term and produce a series of essays, totaling approximately 4,000 words.
The literary content of the course will be decided by the individual instructors, with some emphasis on poetry. Instructors are encouraged to teach the fundamental vocabulary of literary analysis and the basics of MLA style."
The following course description was submitted for English 10, effective Fall 2002, and appears in the catalog as such:
"Acquaints students with purposes and tools of literary interpretation. Introduces techniques and vocabulary of analytic discussion and critical writing. Some emphasis will be on poetry with attention also to drama, essay and the novel."
