National Endowment for the Humanities Bibliography of Humanistic Reading for Grade Levels 1-8.
Literacy Volunteers, Inc., Syracuse, NY.
Compiled for adults who have come late in life to reading, this bibliography is intended to add a humanistic dimension to their basic reading skills; it has been developed on the premise that mere coping skills are not enough for the adult reader. This cooperative program of librarians and literacy volunteers has assembled titles that range across the arts, literature, philosophy, law, history, religion, and the social and behavioral sciences. Skill levels encompassed by the bibliography are grade levels five through eight. Field testing of a sample of 30 books by students and tutors at five participating libraries indicates an increase in both student and tutor understanding and appreciation of the humanities. (RAA)
