Using Adolescent Fiction as a Guide to Inquiry.
Levstik, Linda S.
Theory into Practice, v20 n3 p174-78 Sum 1981
For adolescents, fiction can be an effective source of social information. The material is experienced through subjective involvement in the lives of other people. The student accumulates the historical or background information incidentally from the narrative itself. A variety of teaching methods, including discussion, role playing, and student fiction, are discussed. (JN)
