HAWLEY, JANE STOUDER; JENKINSON, EDWARD B.
THE INDIANA UNIVERSITY ENGLISH CURRICULUM STUDY CENTER CREATED A SEQUENTIAL COURSE OF STUDY IN LITERATURE FOR GRADES SEVEN THROUGH NINE. A BASIC POETRY SEQUENCE, FOCUSING ON STUDENT RESPONSE TO POETRY, EMPHASIZES SOUND AND STORY IN GRADE SEVEN, IMAGE OR PICTURE IN GRADE EIGHT, AND METAPHOR AND TONE IN GRADE NINE. A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE DRAMA AND THE SHORT STORY, INITIATED IN GRADE SEVEN, INTRODUCES STUDENTS TO SHORT FICTION AND LEADS INTO THE STUDY OF TWO HISTORY PLAYS--"ABE LINCOLN IN ILLINOIS" AND "THE LAST DAYS OF LINCOLN"--IN GRADE EIGHT. SHAKESPEAREAN HISTORY PLAYS--"RICHARD III" AND "HENRY V"--ARE STUDIED IN GRADE NINE. NOVELS SELECTED FOR STUDY IN GRADES SEVEN THROUGH NINE ARE LIKEWISE ARRANGED IN A SEQUENCE OF DIFFICULTY, BEGINNING WITH"...AND NOW MIGUEL" AND ENDING WITH "TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD," SO THAT SUCCEEDING WORKS BUILD UP ON PREVIOUS ONES. INCLUDED ARE CRITICAL GENERALIZATIONS OF SELECTED WORKS AND SUGGESTED METHODS OF INSTRUCTION, MAINLY INDUCTIVE. TWO UNITS--A CLASSICAL MYTHOLOGY UNIT IN GRADE EIGHT AND "THE ODYSSEY" IN GRADE NINE--ARE DESIGNED TO ACQUAINT STUDENTS WITH LITERARY SYMBOL AND ALLUSION.
