Teaching Reading through the Arts.
Cowen, John E., Ed.
Exploring ways of using the arts in humanizing reading instruction and in the development of lifetime readers, the articles in this volume offer many creative approaches to help reading and classroom teachers provide their students with educational experiences that will not only help them master basic skills but also affect their capacity for aesthetic appreciation, growth, and sensitivity. Articles in the first section cover reading and film, readers theatre in the classroom, and television viewing skills. Using music to teach reading is the subject of the articles in the next section, while the one article in the fourth section explains how the study of great art can be used to develop reading skills. The last and longest section of the volume contains six articles connecting reading, creative writing, and the literary arts. (JL)
