This course investigates the role(s) literature can take in the EFL classroom, explores various approaches to teaching literary texts and presents a wide range of classroom tasks. We will explore a number of literary texts and genres relevant to the classroom (e.g. short stories, pop songs, graded readers, poetry, novels, etc.), will critically evaluate teaching materials and will ourselves engage in (potential) classroom activities.

- Students become aware of the potential roles of literature and culture in the Austrian school system (school books, curricula, SRDP, etc.).
- Students are introduced to a range of texts that can be used in the EFL classroom.
- Students try out methods to teach the reading of literary texts in the EFL classroom.
- Students translate their findings into a series of lesson plans designed for an Austrian school classroom.

Methods:
- Group and plenary discussions
- Lecturer input
- Micro-teaching
- Group and individual presentations
