Classroom Teachers' Manual for Bibliotherapy.
Schultheis, Miriam, Comp.; Pavlik, Robert, Comp.
A practical approach to using bibliotherapy in the classroom is presented in this manual. Among the materials included are discussions of definitions and dynamics of bibliotherapy, qualifications of a bibliotherapist, objectives and benefits of bibliotherapy, values of individual and group bibliotherapy, and basic human needs; suggestions for activities to aid in determining student needs and interests; a proposed procedure and a plan sheet for bibliotherapy; suggestions for using questioning techniques in class discussions, rewriting reading materials to lower their readability level, and excerpting materials; and descriptions of follow-up activities. The manual also provides lists of children's books that deal with physical appearance, emotions and character traits, family relationships, and socioeconomic problems; lists of audiovisual materials that can help develop conceptual understandings, positive attitudes, and communicative skills; and bibliographies of relevant readings. An appendix presents sample lessons and questions to help students learn about themselves. (GW)
