Children and Literature.
Catterson, Jane H., Ed.
This volume contains papers that should help both elementary and high school teachers bring literature into the school curriculum and provide literary experiences which should carry over into the future. The introductory group of papers is entitled "The Point of View." The first paper uses the classroom as its center of focus. The second enlarges the frame of reference to the United States and addresses the funding situation for educational materials. The last paper focuses on making world understanding a frame of reference for literature education. In the section of the book a number of papers are grouped under the general heading "Choosing the Books." This section discusses the oral tradition, Newbery Award books, children's literature, sex-typed material, and adolescents and reading. The last section, "Using the Books," includes four papers directed at helping teachers to understand what general considerations should enter into their planning for the use of literature with children and what specific techniques may be employed to make book reading the kind of activity society would endorse.
