The Primary Goal in Teaching Literature.
Slack, Robert C.
PCTE Bulletin, n19 p16-21 May 1969
A knowledge of literary forms, periods, and biographical background is of secondary importance in the study of literature, the primary function of which is to help students experience through feeling, intellect, and imagination what it is to be alive. This may be accomplished by the "inductive" or "discovery" method in which students are encouraged to examine the work under discussion and enter into the closest possible relationship with it. (MF)
