ENGL 102 Introduction to Literature
English 102 incorporates Coast Mountain College's focus on experiential place-based learning. "Experiential learning means engaging with learners in direct experience and focused reflection to increase knowledge, develop skills, clarify values and develop people's capacity to contribute to their communities. Place-based learning connects classroom to learning from, about, in, and for the local environment, cultures, history, economy and politics." (https://www.coastmountaincollege.ca) Students are encouraged to consider their own lives, communities, experiences, and interests when selecting research topics. English 102 provides students with an opportunity to examine the relationship of three genres of literature to the world outside, with time spent on both close reading and critical writing. Student will consider how literature as a cultural form and practise both responds to and reflects the social context from which it emerges. Considerable emphasis will be placed on the work of Indigenous writers and writers outside of the Western tradition.
