icona_lezionilogo_trasparenteReading Poetry - Theory and Practice - C.M. Bajetta

Taking the cue from the incipit of Eliot’s Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, this class aims at exposing the students to a (hopefully lively...) introduction to poetry reading.


 

Lesson plan



Class:

  • 5th year students 
  • upper-intermediate level



Prerequisites:

Ideally, the class should have already gone through a general survey of British Literature. This, however, is not strictly necessary; information on the authors quoted can be given succinctly during the class.


Lecture organisation:

  • 2 x 45 mins. lecture + class
  • lecture preceded by brief warm-up on British poetry (eliciting from students key themes and authors)
  • followed by sum-up class, random checks and questions, use of websites.



Teaching strategies and tools:

  • Harvard University Derek Bok Center Guidelines (allow interruptions, repeat key concepts, encourage personal response) 
  • Use of visual materials, PowerPoint, Internet, but also blackboard to spell names and occasionally words the students may find difficult to understand at first hearing.


Objectives:

Taking the cue from the incipit of Eliot’s Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, this class aims at exposing the students to a (hopefully lively...) introduction to poetry reading.
