This short paper gives you a chance to focus on how you would transform the instruction of the literature class you are teaching. The assignment does not assume that your current instruction is "bad," but that it can, like all instruction, be improved, perhaps dramatically. This paper can be a center piece in your final project, and should be, at this point, about five pages.
We have thought about discipline, subjectivity, the "corespondence principle," "hidden curriculum," student resistance, "problem-posing," textual intervention, grouping and individualized instruction, active and service learning, as well as a variety of "best practices" and formal models for instruction in English.
The best instructional strategies are deeply tied to the curriculum, to what the teacher wants the students to learn.
