In this subject students will develop professional skills in the appreciation and critical evaluation of literature through immersion in a wide variety of genres, explicit instruction in theories and frameworks, critical analysis of research and reflexive transformation of their practice. Exploration requires movement from the known to the unknown and in this sense the student will examine their existing approaches to literature and challenge these with new models, forms and modes. Students will design a web folio of literature-based learning and connections.
