Basic Approach

The latest addition to the Longman Literature for College Readers series, Looking at Literature introduces developmental readers to a selection of easily accessible and classic short stories alongside a full-length novel and a play.

With an outstanding selection of authors and carefully designed apparatus, Looking at Literature is the ideal vehicle for introducing literature to developing readers. Organized around different literary elements, such as plot, theme, and character, the selections in the text are surrounded by pedagogy including vocabulary exercises, pre-reading questions, comprehension quizzes, and writing prompts.
