Lesson plan and rationale, using literature to teach language.
Design a lesson plan which could be used with a level and type of class you are teaching or have taught. The lesson must use some type of literature as material. You must also design a lesson rationale showing why the piece has been chosen for this particular class and explaining and justifying the choices in the lesson i.e. why this piece of literature uses in the way it was was. The rationale must be supported by reading. The lesson plan itself is not included in the word count.
( I will upload the plan template file later)
++Class type and level:
Monolingual class of Arabic speaking students in intermediate level.
+++The plan must achieve the following:
1- Demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of literary language, the historical use of literature in EFL/ESL and pedagogical options in relation to using literature for teaching language.
2- Apply the above knowledge to the critical analysis of materials which use literature to teach language.
3- Apply the above knowledge to creating and justifying materials and classes which use literature to teach language.
