The Novel as Metaphor for Curriculum and Tool for Curriculum Development.
Overly, Norman V.; Spalding, Elizabeth
Journal of Curriculum and Supervision, v8 n2 p140-56 Win 1993
Rejecting technological, job-training views of curriculum, this article affirms the similarity of good novels to good curriculum as to diversity of voice, transcendent theme, cohesive structure, construction of meaning. Novels do not automatically broaden one's horizons; the reader's expectation for discovering relevant ideas and willingness to make connections are all important. (38 references) (MLH)
