Enhancing Response to Literature through Character Analysis.
Johannessen, Larry R.
Clearing House, v74 n3 p145-50 Jan-Feb 2001
Argues that traditional textbook approaches to teaching literature alienate students from literature. Describes effective alternatives in which students learn interpretive strategies as they analyze and discuss their own important values in life, and then those of characters in a story; and learn to deal with irony. Outlines writing activities that reinforce interpretive strategies and analytical skills students have developed. (SR)
