Jensen-Osinski, Barbara H.
This annotated bibliography lists 57 literary works for use in a freshman composition and American Literature course that uses the life cycle theme as the central approach; also included are observations on and guidelines for teaching such a course. Contained in the bibliography are 17 works dealing with youth, 21 works dealing with middle age, and 19 works dealing with old age. Observations are made pertaining to teaching the life cycle theme in freshman English classes. Appended to the bibliography are the following materials: (1) an abstract of a study of the impact of older people as peers in the classroom on attitudes and on performance of undergraduates; (2) a course syllabus using materials listed in the bibliography; (3) five essay assignments given to two freshmen English classes studying the life cycle theme; (4) mid-term and final examinations for the course; and (5) a small group assignment dealing with thoughts on growing older. (The above-mentioned study is available separately--see note.) (MN)
