Journal Article — When Literature Is Evangelical: Pedagogies of Passion — by J. Ken Stuckey




This essay examines how to teach from a point of passion to engage students with narrative study in a manner that moves them beyond the preoccupation with the pragmatic applications of reading and writing. I discuss two key teaching activities that allow students to see literature as a scholarly discipline in its proper context as a very personal philosophical tenet: A. “The Read-In and Write-In”; and B. “Bring a Friend to Class Day.”
