Study of Character in English. [Computer Diskette].
Part of a three-program set, this computer software program is designed to support the teaching of literary criticism in the English classroom through a focus on characterization. It aids teachers in the search for literary meaning by providing questions from different reading positions. The program is easy to operate and requires little prior computing knowledge. It provides 150 questions in three forms--a generic version of each question (without reference to any particular work), an example question (showing how the question might read when applied to a specific novel), and a modifiable version where changes can be made by the user. Worksheets, tests, or study programs can be constructed from any combination of the questions. Each question within the program is linked to a curriculum positioning bank which suggests how it may be read from three commonly taught reading positions. (RS)
