New Book publication: Teaching Literature in Singapore Secondary Schools by Loh Chin Ee, Dennis Yeo and Warren Liew

Written by teachers, curriculum specialists, and teacher educators, this collection of 18 chapters documents, in sustained and critical fashion, the realities and possibilities of Literature education in Singapore schools. Collectively, these chapters address a broad range of issues including: the history and philosophy of Literature education in Singapore, policy changes and curriculum development, school-wide and level-wide approaches to the implementation of Literature programmes, specific classroom pedagogies for the teaching of drama, poetry, prose and film, approaches to writing and assessment, interdisciplinary connections between Literature and other Humanities subjects, and the everyday challenges that Literature teachers face.

Attentive to the vital links between theory and practice, each essay in this collection offers theoretical ideas and practical suggestions for the teaching of Literature in a range of schools and classroom contexts, along with concluding questions that aim to provoke further critical thinking among authors and readers.

The book will be available from 1 March from Kinokuniya at $35.40 (GST included). It is also available at the NIE Campus bookstore at $24.70.
