1.1The Study's Background
The literature component in English is designed to improve students' language proficiency while also generating the aesthetic part of the language, which is personal response from students. According to the English language Curriculum Specifications, the goal of literature is to address not only the interpersonal, informational, and aesthetic value of learning, but also the learning of the English language in general.
Similarly, this goal is consistent with the Malaysia Ministry of education's curriculum, which states that the objectives of incorporating literature into the English language syllabus are to enable students to improve their proficiency through reading, respond to text, draw lessons and insights from slices of life, understand and appreciate other cultures, relate to events, characters, and their own lives, and expose students to models of good writing.
Literature in Education aims to develop students' potential in a holistic, balanced, and integrated manner that includes intellectual, spiritual, emotional, and physical aspects in order to create a balanced and harmonious human being with high social standards. As a result, incorporating literature into the English Language syllabus has the primary goal of improving students' language ability.
The CCL Program, as stated in the English Language Curriculum Specification, aims to help students improve their English by reading simple fiction, to provide a continuum for the literature component introduced in school, and to create an enjoyable learning environment.
In this regard, literature is intended to address not only the interpersonal and informational aesthetic value of learning, but also to go beyond that, where students learn about people, culture, ethics, behaviors, and other social norms. As a result, incorporating children's literature into the classroom would assist children in expanding their imaginations and acquiring literacy.
There is a need to determine whether the literature component in English is taught in accordance with its goals and objectives. As a result, a focus on the approaches used by teachers in the teaching of the literature component in English would be extremely valuable and interesting. The research will concentrate on the approaches used and the difficulties encountered when teaching literature to secondary school students.
