The Master in
Research in Language and Literature Teaching gathers the experience of the
Doctorate in Teaching of Language and Literature and aims at the formation of researchers.
These researchers should be capable of analyzing the processes and the teaching-learning
relationships which take place in language and literature classes, contributing
with criticism and reflection elements to the educative practice, elaborating
and applying evaluation tools and resources to the linguistic and literary
learning and so on. In short, its
objective is to bring up researchers able to make intervention proposals which
help overcome the problems that affect linguistic and literary education in
Given this applied approach, the participation in such
a master's degree is an excellent way of improving the formation of the
teaching staff at different educative levels and also the best way of facing,
directly, the problems and new challenges posed by the current education. Plurilinguism, multiculturalism, simultaneous
learning of two or more foreign languages, correction and communicative efficiency of children and youth, reading and writing acquisition, the capacity of communicating through the oral
and the written channels in formal contexts, the use of literature or cinema and its educational application as
tools of personal growth, the use of
information and communication technologies as a learning instrument and so
forth. All these topics have been raised by the most worried teachers from
schools and high schools themselves and, at the same time, they are the focus
of priority attention of this master's degree.
This master constitutes the formation period for the Doctorate
in Teaching of Language and Literature Program.
