This issue of "Kansas English" contains three articles on the topic "English Literature Outside Traditional Rubrics." The first article, by Nancy S. Prichard, discusses the importance of the new literatures in the education of children and young adults. New literatures are defined as the writings of minority group members in the United States and writings in English and French from all parts of the world. The article also discusses some of the specific materials that are available and the reaction of some students who have read these new literatures. The second article, by Priscilla Tyler, discusses teaching approaches to African literature in general, and specifically to "The Road" by Wole Soyinka and "Arrow of God" by Chinua Achebe. The third article, by Vincent Gillespie, discusses Amerindian poetry. The issue also contains a review of "A Question of Power" by Bessie Head, and a description of a law to prevent sex discrimination in educational institutions receiving Federal funds. (TS)
