This free and open online course in Literature was produced by the WA State Board for Community & Technical Colleges [http://sbctc.edu/].
This class explores ways that writers portray human experience in their short stories, poems and plays. Through class discussions, lectures, and creative responses, students will gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of literary works. In this course students develop and express their own analytic responses to a variety of works of literature, paying special attention to the ways that literary works are crafted and also to the ways readers' understanding of literature is subject to personal perspectives and various theoretical frameworks.
