Teaching Strategies for Enabling Elementary Pupils to Develop Inductively the Literary Concepts of Plot, Theme, Characterization, and Setting.
Wiser, Nell Funderburk
The purpose of this study was to develop teaching strategies that are designed to enable elementary pupils to form literary concepts through inductive processes. This research has four phases in its design. In the planning phase, a theoretical base for designing the strategies is developed from a synthesis of four areas of research and theory: concept formation and levels of questioning; child development and its implications for the development of teaching strategies; advantages and limitations of behaviorally stated objectives; and the literary concepts of plot, theme, characterization, and setting. The three other phases are the construction of teaching strategies consistent with the planning rationale, applications of each strategy to literary models on the two levels of maturity and scholastic aptitude, and evaluation of a sample of the strategies and applications by a jury of experts in the field of children's literature. It was concluded that strategies constructed according to this design may be used to enable pupils to develop literary concepts, a strategy developed according to this design may be applied to books of any developmental or scholastic level, and behaviorally stated objectives may be formulated for competencies prerequisite for forming a literary concept.
