Literary-Vocational Relationships in the American Educational Context, From 1820: Implications for Instruction.
Holmes, Leigh Howard
In order to locate means to enhance student vocational preparation through the study of literature, literary-vocational relationships are identified or inferred in selected aspects of the American educational context. The first two chapters introduce the study and survey background influences, while the third and fourth chapters examine the historical background through the 19th and 20th centuries, including the ideas of Thoreau, Greeley, Emerson, Channing, and Dewey. The fifth chapter reviews suggested combinations within the context of specialized education (junior colleges and workers' educational movements), and the sixth chapter states the findings of the study, concluding that correlation of liberal, including literary, education with vocational education has a value justification and a practical basis. Fourteen literary-vocational relationships are described, including ideas for lessons and course development based on the use of such materials as vocational booklists and the ballads and songs generated historically within various occupations.
