This multimedia courseware (language learning program) is designed for secondary school students especially for Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) in English Literature course. The syllabus consists of literary components such as poems, short stories and novels. I named my language learning program as Poem’s World because first and foremost, I only focus to the poems, which contain of six different poems. Besides, a range of texts are offered in the secondary school curriculum and covers Malaysian, British, European, Australian, American and African works. It shows that these poems are come from different part of the world. In addition, Poem’s World also covers all literary elements about poetry such as themes, moral values, setting, synopsis and language and style. It covers the whole ‘world’ of poems. Instead of it, learners are expected to be able to follow a storyline and understand a poem and to give their own personal response to the text. The study of these texts is meant to inculcate values and broaden learners’ outlook.

2.0 INTRODUCTION

Filed under: 2.0 INTRODUCTION — poemsworld1 @ 1:18 pm

Hello guys!!

As far as we are concern, the teaching and learning of Literature is not an easy as the teaching and learning of other fields in language. We need to have more practice especially in thinking skills. Literature requires learners to be more critical when it deals with the literary elements in the text. So, in the beginning of the lessons, I believe that all of you have to learn about what is poetry first. You will get clear understanding of what is poetry and the definitions of each of literary elements.
