Methodologies Description
Directed discussion When dealing with literature, debating is essential for in-depth analysis and to assimilate contents, as well as to exchange ideas and interpretations. It may take place in the general sessions (D.E. hours, "docencia expositiva" or lecture hours) or in small groups (T.G.R., "titoría grupo reducido"), and it will be the main methodology in the hours assigned to D.I. ("docencia interactiva", Interactive teaching).
Workbook In a literature course, it is essential for each student to take on the responsibility to complete the assigned readings before entering the classroom. In English Literature I, the schedule of readings will be made available both in the classroom and the Moodle platform. It is also each student's responsibility to be up to date on possible changes in the schedule.
Guest lecture / keynote speech In the lecture sessions, the professor will present the theoretical contents related to English literature and its context from its origins until the end of the 17th century. Basic concepts for the analysis of literary texts will also be introduced in these classes. All these contents will frame and feed the work later developed in the mid-size and small groups sessions.
Supervised projects Students will complete various written assignments (eg., literary analyses) mostly during class time. Out of the classroom, students will undertake additional tasks, such as reading, reviewing and editing.
Mixed objective/subjective test Students will take a final exam in which they will need to demonstrate their mastery of the theoretical contents as well as the skills practised in every class. This exam will consist of short questions (definitions of critical terms and periods, identification of excerpts from the texts studied, analysis, etc).
Seminar In T.G.R. sessions, work will mostly focus on writing well-structured interpretations of the readings.
