What are the essential learning outcomes for an English major? Beth's framework lists some general outcomes for all English courses and some specific outcomes for courses in each of three groups. How would you add to or modify those outcomes?
Some things to consider here:
- What are the skills our program should teach?
- Are there particular books, authors, ideas, or other content that we should teach?
- Is there content that it's essential for all majors to learn?
- Given a ten-course major, in which courses should particular skills and content be taught?
