SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING OLD. DIFFICULT LITERATURE--A READER'S VIEW. LITERATURE CURRICULUM VI, TEACHER AND STUDENT VERSIONS.
KITZHABER, ALBERT R.
THE FIRST OF THESE TWO 12TH-GRADE LITERATURE UNITS, "SOMETHING NEW, SOMETHING OLD," IS DESIGNED TO HELP STUDENTS TO RECOGNIZE EXPRESSIONS OF COMMON EXPERIENCE PRESENT IN LITERARY WORKS REGARDLESS OF WHEN THEY WERE WRITTEN. WORKS SELECTED FOR THIS UNIT ARE GROUPED UNDER FOUR TOPICS--"YOUTH AND AGE,""THE NATIVITY, CHRISTIAN TRADITION,""CONFLICT OF GENERATIONS," AND "THE INDIVIDUAL IN CONFLICT WITH SOCIETY." THE SECOND UNIT, "DIFFICULT LITERATURE--A READER'S VIEW," IS INTENDED TO GUIDE STUDENTS IN ISOLATING THE PRINCIPAL DIFFICULTIES OF READING LITERATURE AND IN EVALUATING THE VARIOUS JUSTIFICATIONS FOR LITERARY DIFFICULTY (E.G., HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL DISTANCE, AUTHOR ORIGINALITY, AND THE COMPLEXITY OF THE WORLD). THE STUDENT VERSION CONTAINS AN INTRODUCTORY ESSAY AND DISCUSSION QUESTIONS, AND THE TEACHER VERSION PROVIDES DISCUSSION QUESTIONS AND INTRODUCTIONS TO UNITS AND TO LITERARY SELECTIONS. FIVE TESTS DESIGNED TO ACCOMPANY THESE UNITS ARE APPENDED. SEE ALSO ED 010 129 THROUGH ED 010 160, ED 010 803 THROUGH ED 010 832, TE 000 195 THROUGH TE 000 220, AND TE 000 227 THROUGH TE 000 249.
