1.0 HOMEPAGE October 27, 2009

Filed under: 1.0 HOMEPAGE — poemsworld1 @ 1:30 pm


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.
