Teaching of prose

 Prose is an important area of English Literature. It allows us to get the  detailed view about the subject matter. Unlike poetry it is easily understandable as it is story-like. Students must be allowed to read the prose loudly so that the pronunciation can be refined at the same time by the teacher. I am giving some examples asto how to teach prose


When Duttada acquired  this telescope he was so thrilled that he called it  Dibya Chakshu— Divine Eye.
To Indrani Debi the telescope was like a designing woman who had ensnared her husband.
So she just called it Dibya and the name stuck. To Duttada the telescope marked the fulfilment of the ambition of a lifetime.

•As an amateur astronomer he had longed for enough
money to buy a good telescope and for enough spare time in which
to observe the heavens.

•He got them both when he retired with ample money.

•The telescope was duly installed and long were the dark
nights that Duttada spent in star -gazing. At least Indrani Debi
thought so.


After loud reading by the teacher ,the learners will get an idea regarding pronunciation of new words like amateur ,telescope ,heavens ,gazing etc.With the help of audio-visuals  now they are assimilating the words and new ideas. I pesonally ,at this point of time feel that we must also address some more detailed objectives of teaching of prose related to speaking and writing (self expression)
