Teaching American Literature: A Journal of Theory and Practice
Teaching American Literature: A Journal of Theory and Practice (TALTP), a peer-reviewed journal published by Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, North Carolina, is aimed toward instructors of American literature courses in four- and two-year universities and colleges.
Our goal is to feature practical articles on best classroom practices, including the use of the Internet and other technology. Articles featuring the use of critical theories in teaching American literature an introducing minor or lost American authors are welcome, as are reviews of new titles that would interest instructors. Our readers seek to more effectively transfer their knowledge of, interest in, and passion for American literature to their students.
