Beyer, Charlotte (2013) The Stuff of Legend, or Unpacking Cultural Baggage? Introducing First-year English Literature and Humanities Students to Foundational Literary Texts. Changing English, 20 (4). pp. 395-403. ISSN 1358-684XFull text not available from this repository.
This article explores teaching and learning perspectives in relation to a first-year English Literature module on foundational literary texts and considers the value of certain assessment modes. The essay discusses methodological and pedagogical questions and argues that the module provides a contextual platform from which first-year students are able to appreciate issues of cultural and textual transmission. The article concludes that the material and the assessment format contribute to furthering an undergraduate research agenda and provides students with the opportunity to reflect on their own learning.
