- Laura L. Runge’s Annotated Bibliography on Literature Pedagogy, compiled for a course on teaching literature by students. “The bibliography is divided into four sections. The main section contains works on pedagogy, mostly scholarly books and articles. The three smaller sections cover: texts to be used in the classroom, such as anthologies and critical editions of literary works; websites on teaching; and journals and other periodicals that deal with issues relevant to English teachers.”
