A Model for the Instruction of Poetry Designed for Attitude Development.
Maase, Elda Ocea Apel
This study is an attempt to develop a high school poetry-teaching model designed for attitude development. The study reviewed related research and literature on objectives for teaching English and surveyed a school to determine student preferences among the poetry-teaching methods currently recommended. The model proposed includes the general goals of producing many literate, poetry-reading citizens; expanding the knowledge of individual learners; and developing behavioral objectives that stress affective domain goals. The model interrelates elements of (1) contents, (2) process and techniques, (3) facilities and equipment, and (4) evaluation of behavioral objectives and general attitude toward poetry. It is recommended that the model be tested among students exhibiting negative attitudes toward poetry, as long as the attitudes are first assessed by an instrument that can become a part of the evaluation of the model. Teachers using the model should be willing to use affective-domain behavioral objectives as a way to measure progress toward poetry appreciation. (Author/DI)
