The Inductive Teaching of English.
Steinberg, Erwin R.; And Others
The inductive-method teacher sees himself as part of a process of learning rather than as dispenser of knowledge. He structures classroom situations in which students discover answers and concepts for themselves. He selects material and guides class work, but concentrates on how a student learns, developing a carefully-guided sequence of questions and situations to achieve the desired "cumulative process" that is the inductive method. Valuable by-products include student experience in speaking and listening and provocative class discussion. The lesson plans developed by the Curriculum Study Center in English at Carnegie Institute of Technology employ inductive principles in teaching literature, language, and composition. (Included are sample units on lyric poetry, "Julius Caesar," Faulkner's "Wash," parts of speech, semantics, and composition. Typical homework assignments are noted.) (RH)
