Bringing It Together: Literature in Integrative Curriculum.
Smith, J. Lea; Jackson, Holly
Middle School Journal, v25 n1 p3-7 Sep 1993
Narrative texts create a more relevant, personal, and individualized learning context than content textbooks while uniting adolescents' concerns with the school curriculum and the world. Narrative texts build on prior knowledge, helping students identify and assimilate different world views and more complex knowledge. This article presents a model for incorporating adolescent literature into an integrative curriculum. (24 references) (MLH)
