CURTIS, ALICE; AND OTHERS
THIS TEACHING GUIDE IS PRESENTED TO ASSIST THE TEACHER IN WHOSE CLASSES ARE ONE OR MORE GIFTED PUPILS READING ABOVE GRADE LEVEL. DESIGNED FOR USE WITH GIFTED PUPILS AT GRADES FIVE AND SIX, PART 1 PROVIDES GUIDANCE FOR TEACHING THE CONTRIBUTIONS OF ONE AUTHOR TO CHILDREN'S LITERATURE. THE METHOD USES THREE GROUPINGS OF BOOKS. THE "A" BOOK, "ALONG CAME A DOG" BY MEINDERT DE JONG, IS USED TO STIMULATE THE CHILDREN TO READ THE "B" AND "C" BOOKS AND IS ANALYZED IN DETAIL. THE FOUR "B" BOOKS, ALSO BY DE JONG, ARE INDIVIDUALLY READ, DISCUSSED, EVALUATED, AND COMPARED TO THE "A" BOOK AND TO EACH OTHER. THE FIFTEEN "C" BOOKS ARE NOT INDIVIDUALLY ANALYZED, BUT ARE READ INDEPENDENTLY. THEY PROVIDE A RICHER BACKGROUND FOR AN IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS OF THE "A" AND "B" BOOKS AND SHOULD BE READ CONCURRENTLY WITH THE OTHERS. GUIDANCE FOR THE TEACHER INCLUDES SUGGESTIONS FOR MOTIVATING THE PUPILS, FOR INTRODUCING THE STORY, FOR SETTING UP PURPOSES FOR READING, FOR TEACHING VOCABULARY, AND FOR GUIDING QUESTIONS FOR DISCUSSING IMPORTANT ELEMENTS OF CHARACTERIZATION, PLOT DEVELOPMENT, AND STYLE. SYNOPSES ARE GIVEN FOR EACH OF THE "B" AND "C" BOOKS. BACKGROUND INFORMATION ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND THE ILLUSTRATOR IS PROVIDED. (RH)
