Poetry-Teaching Tools.
Murray, John J.
JGE: The Journal of General Education, v17 n2 p115-122 Jul 1965
Three game approaches to the teaching of poetry, designed to make the student actively involved with poems are described as "teaching tools." The semantico-dictionary or word-cross game involves programing techniques, logic, and lexicography in poetic analysis. The punched-out poem game involves filling in the blanks of a poem in which all the words supplied act as cues. The poem-paradigm game used traditional sentence outlining to show how sub-parts are interrelated. Byron's poem "She Walks in Beauty" is used as the example for all three games. The influence of Wittgenstein, Descartes, and I.A. Richards is briefly discussed as well as the Cloze procedure in game theory. (AF)
