DAGHLIAN, PHILIP B.; JENKINSON, EDWARD B.
A CONTINUATION OF "TEACHING LITERATURE IN GRADES 7 THROUGH 9" (SEE ED 013 804.), THIS BOOK OFFERS A TEACHING APPROACH WHICH EMPHASIZES THE CLOSE READING OF LITERARY WORKS IN A SEQUENTIAL ORDER OF INCREASING COMPLEXITY. EACH OF THE FIRST THREE SECTIONS ("POETRY,""SHORT STORY," AND "DRAMA", PRESENTS A PROGRAM FOR THE TEACHING OF THAT GENRE IN GRADES 10 (AMERICAN LITERATURE), 11 (ENGLISH LITERATURE), AND 12 (WORLD LITERATURE). THE FOURTH SECTION CONSISTS OF ESSAYS ON NINE NOVELS, THREE FOR EACH GRADE LEVEL, WHICH DEMONSTRATE HOW THE NOVELS SHOULD BE APPROACHED BY THE TEACHER AND TAUGHT TO STUDENTS. THE NOVELS ANALYZED ARE (1) "THE MEMBER OF THE WEDDING," (2) "THE RED BADGE OF COURAGE," (3) "THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN," (4) "GULLIVER'S TRAVELS," (5) "WUTHERING HEIGHTS," (6)"HEART OF DARKNESS," (7) "SIDDHARTHA," (8) "CRY, THE BELOVED COUNTRY," AND (9) "CRIME AND PUNISHMENT." EMPHASIZED THROUGHOUT THE BOOK IS THE NECESSITY FOR THE TEACHER TO ESTABLISH HIS OWN CRITICAL POSITION BEFORE PRESENTING THE INDIVIDUAL WORK TO THE STUDENTS, AND TO DEVELOP THE MATERIAL IN A SEQUENCE WHICH HAS A FOCUS--THE EMPHASIS ON VARIOUS USES OF COMPARISONS IN THE GRADE 11 POETRY UNIT, FOR EXAMPLE. STUDY QUESTIONS ON INDIVIDUAL WORKS ARE FREQUENTLY PROVIDED.
