Teaching Literature in the Elementary School.
Gilpatrick, Naomi
Education, v89 n2 p136-41 Nov-Dec 1968
To actively and pleasurably involve children in a wide variety of literature, a teacher can follow a "World's Fair model" to broaden each child's language ability while guiding him through the genres. The child, encouraged to develop an "allocentric" mode of perception, extends himself as he might at a fair to take in new objects and information for self-satisfaction. The teacher is free to explore with his students new children's books and to develop a wide repertoire of teaching strategies which, like the various exhibits at the Fair, will challenge each child, bring him out of his inertia, and stimulate his thinking in depth.
