Literary Literacy.
Cai, Mingshui; Traw, Rick
Journal of Children's Literature, v23 n2 p20-33 Fall 1997
Describes how literature is used in elementary classrooms, and is a problem in pedagogical practice. Argues for the need to place a greater emphasis on the study of literature as a subject in the reading program and to help students develop "literary literacy." Suggests a holistic approach to teaching literature that combines transactional and textual theories of reader response. (RS)
