Use of Literary Models in Teaching Written Composition, Grades K-6.
Georgia Univ., Athens. English Curriculum Study Center.
This compilation of resource materials for the teaching of written composition in grades K-6 is based on the assemptions that the desire to write frequently results from the enjoyment and stimulation derived from reading what another has written; that children's literature offers the pupil contact with master writers; and that this contact may be systematically encouraged and developed by the teacher. Chapter 1 explains the function of structure in written composition. An extensive second chapter cites and discusses 15 children's literature selections divided among units for two educational levels (K-3 and 4-6) and for advanced students. Children's expected achievement levels, objectives, and suggested learning experiences are given for each selection. Chapter 3 contains two illustrations of the use of literary models: the first illustration presents 12 sample lessons for fifth-grade children, and the second is comprised of items from a test on understanding figurative language used experimentally with 145 sixth-grade children. An annotated bibliography of books for children concludes the volume. (LH)
