Teaching Literature by Women Authors. Teaching Resources in the ERIC Database (TRIED).
McGowen, Carolyn Smith
Designed to tap the rich collection of instructional techniques in the ERIC database, this compilation of lesson plans focuses on practical suggestions for addressing the works of women authors in the English/language arts classroom at elementary, middle-school, and secondary levels. The 57 lesson plans in this book cover lessons on gender equity, novels, biography and autobiography, short stories, and poetry. The book includes an activities chart which indicates the focus and types of activities (such as creative tasks, vocabulary development, oral reading, journal writing, symbols, and simulation) found in the various lessons. A 61-item annotated bibliography contains references to related resources in the ERIC database. (RS)
