Teaching method

This discipline includes a lecture component (theory) and a practical component (with includes methodology).
In the former there will be recall, debate and clarification of concepts while in the latter there will be a
metalinguistic and comparative study of discursive and textual elements. Classes will consist of expository
sessions with tasks that will engage the participation of the students in accordance with a pre-established
plan.

Evaluation method

Besides evaluating student’s participation in the seminars (20%) there will also be written assignments
with class presentation based on the scholarly discussion of theoretical issues and specific cases (80%).
