A CURRICULUM FOR ENGLISH, GRADE 3, UNITS 23-33.
Nebraska Univ., Lincoln. Curriculum Development Center.
THE NEBRASKA ENGLISH CURRICULUM FOR GRADE THREE CONTINUES TO CENTER ON THE READING OF LITERATURE, WITH RELATED LANGUAGE AND COMPOSITION ACTIVITIES. TO STRENGTHEN CHILDREN'S AWARENESS OF THE ORAL AND REPETITIVE PATTERNS IN FOLK LITERATURE AND OF THE LITERARY PURPOSES OF THESE DEVICES, SEVERAL GRIMM FAIRY TALES ARE READ AND THEN COMPARED WITH MODERN STORIES--"MADELINE" AND "THE FIVE CHINESE BROTHERS," FOR EXAMPLE--WHICH CONTAIN A SERIES OF PARALLEL ELEMENTS. SEVERAL ANIMAL STORIES ARE ANALYZED FOR SUCH STYLISTIC FEATURES AS REPETITION, ALLITERATION, AND ONOMATOPOEIA. "THE BLIND COLT" IS READ FOR ITS REALISTIC TREATMENT OF ANIMALS AND ITS USE OF WORDS THAT APPEAL TO THE SENSES. "WINNIE THE POOH" AND "MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS" ILLUSTRATE CONFLICT AND COMIC ADVENTURE IN STORIES. THREE GREEK MYTHS AND THE TALKING BEAST FABLES OF CHAUCER AND THE BROTHERS GRIMM HELP CHILDREN TO UNDERSTAND THE MYTH AND THE FABLE AS CONSCIOUS LITERARY CLASSIFICATIONS AND AS PART OF OUR CULTURAL HERITAGE. "THE RED BALLOON" EXEMPLIFIES THE UNIVERSALITY OF HUMAN EMOTION, WHEREAS "THE COURAGE OF SARAH NOBLE" AND THE BIOGRAPHY, "COLUMBUS AND HIS BROTHERS," ACQUAINT CHILDREN WITH HISTORICAL THEMES. THIS MANUAL IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA PRESS, 215 NEBRASKA HALL, LINCOLN, NEBRASKA 68508. (SEE ALSO TE 000 048, TE 000 054, AND TE 000 055.) (JB)
