ON TEACHING LITERATURE, ESSAYS FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS. INDIANA UNIVERSITY ENGLISH CURRICULUM STUDY SERIES.
HAWLEY, JANE STOUDER; JENKINSON, EDWARD B.
SIX PROFESSORS OF ENGLISH PRESENT ESSAYS ON THE TEACHING OF EACH OF THE MAJOR LITERARY GENRES. ALL OF THE ESSAYS STRESS THE NECESSITY FOR AN INTELLIGENT CLOSE READING OF A LITERARY WORK, AND FOR AN AWARENESS OF THE VARIETY OF APPROACHES TO TEACHING LITERATURE. DISCOURAGING THE COMMON PRACTICE OF QUIZZING STUDENTS ON FACTUAL INFORMATION, THE ESSAYS RECOMMEND CAREFULLY PHRASED QUESTIONS WHICH LEAD THE STUDENT TO AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE COMPLEXITY OF A LITERARY WORK AND AN APPRECIATION OF ITS ARTISTRY. ABUNDANT EXAMPLES ARE PROVIDED FOR THE ENTIRE PROCESS OF PREPARATION AND PRESENTATION OF A WORK. ESSAYS ARE (1) "ON TEACHING THE NOVEL" BY GEORGE LEVINE, (2) "ON TEACHING SHORT STORIES" BY MARY ALICE BURGAN, (3) "ON TEACHING POEMS" BY PHILIP APPLEMAN, (4) "ON TEACHING DRAMA" BY GERALD RABKIN, (5) "ON TEACHING ESSAYS" BY DON L. COOK, AND (6) "ON TEACHING BIOGRAPHY" BY C. DONALD PEET. THE VOLUME IS INTRODUCED BY AN ESSAY, "AN INTRODUCTION FOR SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS" BY EDWARD B. JENKINSON, WHICH MAKES AN APPEAL FOR MORE PREPARATION TIME AND A REDUCTION OF CLASS LOADS FOR ENGLISH TEACHERS. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FOR $1.95 (CLOTHBOUND, $5.75) FROM THE INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS, 10TH AND MORTON STREETS, BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA 47401. (DL)
