Teaching the Classics.
Lasser, Michael L.
English Record, v20 n3 p25-32 Feb 1970
The English teacher should have two aims: to help his students appreciate the literary values contained in literary works and to help them read with sensitivity and sophistication so that they will want to read. Consequently, the teacher who concentrates on making contemporary applications of literary works instead of dealing with the literary nature of the works themselves is failing his students. That teacher is equally misguided who teaches a work simply because of his own or his students' personal preferences for it, with little or no concern about utilizing the work to educate his students' taste.
