4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The methodology of the subject is articulated around theoretical lectures and practical sessions through which students will get to know the different historical, cultural and social facts that have influenced the composition of the corpus of literary Works selected. Students will also deepen into de analysis of these literary works by paying special attention to ideology and stylistics. The active participation and involvement in the lessons and the debate will be essential both in the theoretical and practical sessions.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

Active and daily participation in the debates and activities proposed in class (evaluated through the constant monitoring of the teacher) will have a weight of 15% in the final grade. At the end of the semester, the students will take a written exam (50% of the final grade) in which they must prove their knowledge about the literary history in English language related to the period between 1660 and 1890, identifying the authors, as well as the most relevant texts within the aforementioned period. Likewise, students must demonstrate that they are capable of critically analyzing a selection of these texts. Apart from this knowledge about the period from a literary point of view and the capacity of philological analysis of different works, the teacher will especially consider linguistic correctness, coherence and fluency in writing. Finally, students will write an essay-like commentary on a book of their choice (among a list shared at the beginning of the semester). For the evaluation of this essay (35% of the final grade), linguistic correction, fluency, originality in the choice of analysis points and coherence in the presentation and content unfolding will be taken into account.

The realization of this essay will be supervised in its progress by the teacher.
