General Education Outcomes in LIT 2480

As you may be aware, the College has come up with a list of 10 General Educational Outcomes, a list of skills and knowledge that you, as a Miami Dade College graduate, will be expected to have mastered over the course of your experience here.

Although every class does not help you develop every Outcome, the course, LIT 2480, Literature and Culture, will help you develop some of them.

1. You will communicate effectively using listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.  This Outcome will be addressed by the reading selections, essays, research paper, and oral presentation that are part of this course.

2. You will solve problems using critical and creative thinking.  This Outcome will be addressed by literary interpretation both oral and written.

3. You will formulate strategies to locate, evaluate, and apply information.  This Outcome will be addressed by the research paper.

4. You will demonstrate knowledge of diverse cultures, including global and historical perspectives.  This Outcome is one of the main themes and focuses of the course.
