Strategies for Teaching Literature for Children--Elementary.
Lowes, Ruth
An exhortation was made for increased use of literature in the elementary grades: never before have books been so abundant or opportunities so available for making books easily accessible to children. The various disciplines and the changes within the last few years and their influence on new strategies for teaching literature are described. An explanation is given of two different approaches for selecting literature materials--from the standpoint of a highly structured curriculum and from that of a nonstructured curriculum. It is noted that advocates of structured or nonstructured curricula have opposing ideas as to where to place the emphasis in teaching literature. Optimism is expressed concerning the inclusion of more literature in elementary curricula i n the future. References are included. (NH)
