Novels for Class Study in Junior High School: Some Recommendations.
Flanigan, Jean Culp
This thesis examines opinions of recognized authorities in the teaching of literature regarding the goals of the literature curriculum in achieving the end of producing students who continue to read for pleasure and enrichment once their formal education is completed. Criteria for selecting novels for adolescents include: (1) readability, availability, and typicality, (2) high interest level, and (3) a recognizable standard of literary quality. Annotated bibliographies of books meeting these criteria are divided into ten major subject categories: personal problems, social problems, adventure, animal stories, historical novels, science fiction, mystery, romance, sports stories, and car stories.
