Editorial Reviews

"Literary Learning offers valuable resources for the literature instructor. It is easily manageable as a theoretical tool when developing a literature class, and it has a number of classroom-ready resources. As an introduction to some of the most elemental ideas behind the teaching of literature, Literary Learning is commendable for referring to actual classroom practices as illustrations of these ideas. Certainly this book will benefit graduate students and faculty interested in examining their own teaching practices.... It is an engaging and accessible read that presents SoTL as an approachable and useful vein of inquiry that can change departmental dynamics, professional goals, and, ultimately, our literature students." -Teacher-Scholar
