A CURRICULUM FOR ENGLISH, GRADE 5, UNITS 45-57.
Nebraska Univ., Lincoln. Curriculum Development Center.
THE NEBRASKA ENGLISH CURRICULUM FOR GRADE FIVE CONTINUES THE PRESENTATION OF LITERARY TECHNIQUES USED TO PRODUCE WORKS OF IMAGINATION. IN "TALL TALE AMERICAN," RAPUNZEL," AND OTHER FAIRY TALES, THE AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN FOLK TRADITIONS ARE COMPARED FOR COMMON STYLISTIC AND STRUCTURAL DEVICES. A MORE COMPLEX USE OF TECHNIQUES USED IN FANCIFUL STORIES IS SEEN IN THE FAIRY TALES OF C.S. LEWIS AND HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN AND IN "THE BIDPAI FABLES" AND "JATAKA TALES" FROM INDIA. "THE DOOR IN THE WALL" PROVIDES AN INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY OF SYMBOLISM. BUILDING UPON PREVIOUS GRADE-LEVEL UNITS, THE READING OF FIVE GREEK MYTHS FURTHERS STUDENTS' UNDERSTANDING OF MYTHIC THOUGHT AND PATTERNS, AND "THE MERRY ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD" PREPARES CHILDREN FOR A LATER STUDY OF EPIC FORM. THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SUBJECT MATTER AND THEME IS SEEN IN "KING OF THE WIND" AND "THE ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS.""CHILDREN OF THE COVERED WAGON" AND "THIS DEAR BOUGHT LAND" ENHANCE CHILDREN'S AWARENESS OF THEIR HISTORICAL HERITAGE. IN ADDITION, "DR. GEORGE WASHINGTON CARVER, SCIENTIST" IS READ TO STUDY A LITERARY TYPE AND TO ENABLE STUDENTS TO ASSESS THE PERSONAL QUALITIES OF A CHARACTER IN LITERATURE. 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)
