Relevancy and Involvement: Literature for the Disadvantaged.
Cooper, David
The English Record, v19 n1 p47-51 Oct 1968
If the disadvantaged student can be encouraged to respond to literature through a variety of student-centered experiences, his cognitive, affective, and creative growth will be greatly stimulated. Teachers can bring into the classroom many titles of contemporary literature which reflect the current concerns of disadvantaged youth. Moreover, an imaginative and flexible approach to instruction should be utilized which makes it possible for the student to participate actively in the literary experience. Creative dramatics and independent, but guided, small group discussions are two methods which encourage participation in thinking about and reacting to literature. (JM)
