A Multi-Media Literature Program--Student Interest Won't Melt Away! Revised Edition.
Moore, Kay
A multimedia reading program for seventh and eighth grade students is presented. Methodology for the seventh grade course consists of designating a particular type of literature for each month of the school year. Story assignments, book reports, and teaching units all revolve around this type of literature. Students read aloud from radio and television scripts and listen to teachers read aloud. Whenever possible, movies are incorporated into classroom learning. The methodology for the eighth grade course focuses on students "meeting" literary authors through filmstrips, cassettes, research, and personal correspondence. As a culminating activity, the eighth grade holds a book fair in which students create a display about a particular author and his or her books. In addition, eighth grade students become authors themselves, writing stories during the year. Instructional materials included in this course description include book report guidelines, specific instructions for student book reports, a list of skills covered in the courses, an outline for a mystery book report, a form for a character interview, a recommended book list, and a list of sources for a multimedia program.
