A Treasury of Literary Classics (Banner)

 

Introduction
This collection of reading tasks is designed to introduce students to famous writers and literary works of the world. It aims to:
  • promote the reading and appreciation of literary classics;
  • widen students’ exposure to and kindle their interest in literature;
  • enrich students’ literary knowledge and enhance their language awareness and sensitivity to creative use of language in literary texts; and
  • prepare students for more advanced study or analysis of literary texts at the senior secondary level.
The collection is sub-divided into different series, mainly based on the origins, literary traditions or genres of the selected literary works. Five reading tasks are included in each series. Each task consists of the following parts:
  • a brief introduction of the author or background of the reading text;
  • comprehension and appreciation questions;
  • extension questions to stimulate further discussion and sharing; and
  • an online/web version which provides explanation and feedback upon task completion.
This collection of reading tasks is intended for use by English Language and Literature in English teachers either as learning tasks in the lessons or as supplementary materials to support students’ self-directed learning outside class / home reading. Teachers can freely adapt the tasks and question items to suit students’ needs.
