This is basically an archived online course that has been offered through by MITOpenCourseware. It includes a syllabus for a course on traditional Chinese literature and a basic description of term assessments. It doesn't offer learning modules or activities that can be immediately used in classroom or homework activities. It is most beneficial for instructors who are looking for a sample syllabus for a Chinese literature in translation course. Many of the reading suggestions provided are primary materials in translation (excerpts from classic literary texts). It doesn't suggest readings that provide much in the way of cultural, literary or historical context. The syllabus puts the greatest emphasis on later imperial vernaculary literature. Consequently, it provides only one possible way of conceptualizing this kind of course.
