APPROACHES TO LITERATURE, A CURRICULUM FOR HONOR STUDENTS.
Euclid English Demonstration Center, OH.
THIS LITERATURE GUIDE FOR TEACHING HONORS STUDENTS IN JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL IS BASED ON THE PREMISE THAT GIFTED STUDENTS ARE DIFFERENT IN KIND AS WELL AS DEGREE FROM AVERAGE STUDENTS AND THAT AN HONORS CURRICULUM SHOULD BE ORGANIZED AROUND THEIR SPECIAL NEEDS. A DISCUSSION OF THE PSYCHOLOGY OF THE GIFTED CHILD IS PRESENTED TO SUGGEST THAT A CHILD'S "GIFTEDNESS" CAN BEST BE DEVELOPED IN SMALL DISCUSSION GROUPS WHOSE PURPOSE IS TO UNDERSTAND CONCEPTS AND ANALYZE LITERATURE INDEPENDENTLY OF THE TEACHER. A VARIETY OF TYPES OF STUDENT COMPOSITIONS ARE ALSO INCLUDED TO ILLUSTRATE THE RESULTS POSSIBLE FROM SUCH A PROGRAM. UNITS CONTAINED IN THIS GUIDE ARE (1) "MAN'S USES OF POWER," GRADE 8, (2) "SATIRE," GRADES 8 AND 9, (3) "SYMBOLISM," GRADE 9 (HONORS AND AVERAGE), AND (4) THREE UNITS FOR GRADE 9 DESIGNED TO TEACH COMPARATIVE TECHNIQUES--"THE MYTHIC HERO,""THE EPIC HERO," AND "THE TRAGIC HERO." EACH UNIT CONTAINS (1) AN OVERVIEW, (2) SPECIFIC LESSON PLANS (INCLUDING INDUCTIVE QUESTIONS, LANGUAGE EXERCISES, AND CREATIVE WRITING ASSIGNMENTS BASED ON REQUIRED READING MATERIALS), (3) STUDY GUIDES FOR STUDENTS, AND (4) BIBLIOGRAPHIES OF POEMS, PLAYS, SHORT STORIES, PROSE SELECTIONS, AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS, AND WORKBOOKS. COPIES OF THE EIGHT UNITS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE (LIMITED SUPPLY) FROM CHARLES C. ROGERS, PROJECT SOUTH CAROLINA 29801, $0.50 PER UNIT. (JB)
