Ways to Experience Literature: A Reading-Communicating Program for High School Students. Guidebook II: Literature to Understand Others, Literature to Change Society, Literature to Discover Beauty.
Kahn, Norma B.
This guide focuses on literature to understand others, literature to change society, and literature to discover beauty. Designed primarily for independent use by students, several of the literary selections in each section of the guide are followed by the same sequence of questions so that students can develop a pattern for questioning themselves. The section on literature to understand others is divided into the following subsets: an introductory questionnaire, reading with a purpose, reading literature to understand others, suggested readings, reading expository material for study purposes, saving time in taking notes from reading, questioning to encourage critical and and creative reading, reading materials about human behavior, major projects, and drawing conclusions about literature to understand others. The section on literature to change society includes seven subsets: an introductory questionnaire, reading literature of protest, reading Utopian literature, creating literature to change society, reading drama to change society, reading magazines and newspaper articles to change society, and drawing conclusions about reading literature and informational material to change society. The final section, on literature to discover beauty, includes subsets on considering poetic versus scientific language, major projects, considering the beauty of literature, reading short stories to discover beauty, and considering the question of art.
