The Feeling Dimension in Reading.
Ediger, Marlow
The feeling dimension of students cannot be ignored in teaching and learning situations. Feelings are there and must not be ignored. Reading stresses word recognition, comprehension of subject matter at diverse levels of complexity, and application of what has been learned. A major ingredient so frequently left out is student appreciation of the feeling of dimension of characters in their diverse manifestations. To become increasingly human, the student, with teacher guidance, needs to read, study, and think about those tendencies which make a person unique, novel, and creative. This paper considers existentialism, perennialism, and experimentalism as philosophies of instruction. The paper also discusses the testing and measurement movement, a currently popular movement in terms of state mandated standards for students to achieve. (Contains 10 references.) (NKA)
