Literature in Language Teaching

Literature and language are intertwined and indispensable entities of societies. As a source of authentic material, using literature in language teaching has grabbed the interest of scholars in the last decades since integrating it in language teaching has a lot of benefits for foreign language learners. To this end, this book presents a huge amount of invaluable theoretical underpinnings of using literature in language teaching and practical activities that can be exploited in teaching English as a second or foreign language.
Literature in Language Teaching examines the use of short stories, novels, drama and poetry in language classes, the role of extensive reading and literature circles in language learning. It also investigates using literature in teaching English to young learners focusing on digital sources of literature. Furthermore, this book covers the issue of teaching culture through literature. We hope that the book will serve as a valuable resource for those who are interested in literature and language teaching. (Tanıtım Bülteninden)
