Reading and Literature.
McCullough, Constance M.
To make literature meaningful to children and youth, the teacher needs to do more than make books available and blow the bellows of motivation. Teachers can gain more insight into reading by analyzing their own behaviors as they read adult literature, and they can use their insight in helping the student discover the way to extract meaning from the printed page. Twenty-eight examples of literature are used in this paper to illustrate the hazards encountered in one adult's attempts to achieve insight, reflection, and appreciation through the reading act. About the same number of points appear in an appendix, detailing situations which make readers uneasy about their solutions and the ways in which they make wrong choices. (Author/JM)
