A Thematic Approach to Literature: An Experimental Curriculum for Grades 7-11.
Middle Country Central School District, Centereach, NY.
The curriculum outlined in this guide emphasizes the two major goals of literature appreciation in junior and senior high school as stimulating the love of reading and the lifetime reading habit, and leading students to see literature as the means of reexperiencing and understanding their own lives. The guide lists general departmental requirements, discusses implementation of the guide, and provides a key to the genres and audiovisual materials listings. Units for grades seven through eleven are categorized according to theme, subtheme, and ability level and contain annotated listings of literary materials and supplementary audiovisual materials.
