Reading Together. An Investigation into the Use of the Class Reader.
A report, in book form, of a "user-survey" concerned with the best current classroom practice in making use of novels, short stories, biographies, etc. The findings are based partly on teachers' replies to a questionnaire about their use of particular books and partly on the author's visits to a number of schools where he observed lessons and studied the pupils' reaction and attitudes. After an introductory chapter and one on the theoretical background (teachers' criteria for their choice of books) there are three chapters describing varied programs based on a number of widely used books. The main part of the book concludes with a chapter on "Living with 'O' Level Literature". There is a series of factual appendices, including one showing which were the most popular books reported on.
