Growing through Literature.
Thomas, Barbara J.
"Growing through Literature" is a curriculum using Joan M. and Erik H. Erikson's theory of the Life Cycle as a structure for selecting and teaching literature to inner-city high school students at Brighton High School in Massachusetts. The program consists of four component parts: Journals, Selected Stories, Discussion, and Autobiography. By viewing the film "Everyone Rides the Carousel" and reading short stories from "Child Development through Literature," students encounter fear, anger, jealousy, compassion, courage, and values directly related to everyday life and relationships. Teachers of English as a Second Language, Special Education, and Theater Arts have been able to adapt this program to meet their needs. (NH)
