Teaching Literature to Adolescents: Short Stories.
Dunning, Stephen
Intended for teachers-to-be at the undergraduate level as well as for teachers with experience, this book presents the premise that the short story--with its appropriate length and natural interest for students--is a unique teaching vehicle. Five parts comprise the volume: Part 1 discusses four teaching principles illustrated by actual short stories; Parts 2 and 3 consist of discussions by Jack Schaefer and Roald Dahl on the teaching of short stories, plus two of each author's stories followed by their comments; Part 4 treats approaches to the short story using excerpts of stories as examples for exercises in taste, style, and structure; and Part 5 explores the library resources available to students who should be encouraged to become independent library patrons.
