The Child in Francophone and Hispanic Literature: Teaching Culture through Literature.
Hines, Marion E., Ed.
This guide, intended for secondary school teachers of French and Spanish, integrates the teaching of culture and literature with a focus on the child in the target culture. The readings and discussion notes are designed to focus student attention on the target culture through these topics. An introductory section discusses the teaching of culture through literature. The second section provides reading outlines for independent study on specific segments of Francophone and Spanish literature (e.g., African and Antillean, Mexican, etc.). The third section contains a series of short papers on children in literature, and the fourth consists of instructional plans for individual literary works. The fifth and final section lists supplementary instructional aids and materials for each language. An extensive list of references is contained in this section. Contents are in English, French, and Spanish. (MSE)
