Teaching methods
In the form of a seminar (analyses and interpretations of selected works), students will get a broader knowledge of literature for young adults. They will be able to identify and analyze the style of outstanding personalities of the studied period. They will further develop their literary knowledge and interpretational skills with the aim to communicate with a literary work more effectively. They will creatively use their knowledge gained not only in contact classes but also in their individual study of recommended literature which they will be able to discuss regularly with their teacher.
Assessment methods
Active participation in seminars (students can miss two sessions) and a running proof are the prerequisites for the students to sit the final examination. Examination topics are announced in the first week of the term in the Information System. To pass the exam students must demonstrate sound knowledge of the historical context (at least at the secondary school level) and literary historical relations to national and world literature. Moreover, students must demonstrate the ability to interpret pieces of literature based on their own reading (see the list of compulsory reading). Completion of the course: written examination
