Writing about Literature.
Kahn, Elizabeth A.; And Others
Intended to help secondary school English teachers integrate literature study and composition instruction, this booklet explores the relationship between literature and composition and suggests ways of designing instruction so that students may write effectively about the literature they read. The first portion of the booklet discusses such components of research and theory as the assessment of student response to literature, the basics of literary interpretation, and principles of sequencing and activity design. The practice portion of the booklet presents instructional activity sequences for supporting an interpretation, explicating implied relationships, and analyzing authors' generalizations. (HTH)
