We are passionate about literature and we love to teach it.
Edmonds College English faculty values the opportunity to explore our appreciation for various works of literature in the classroom with you. Our instructors will bring diverse approaches to literature classes and use a creative variety of assignments and assessment methods. In all of our literature courses, our teachers will strive to help you develop meaningful questions about the texts you are reading and to deepen your understanding of literature.
Our literature courses give you practice in the skills required for other classes, particularly writing and critical thinking. Also, our literature courses count toward distribution or elective credits for the AA degree, and some of our literature courses fulfill the Cultural Diversity (CD) requirement for the AA degree.
