Studying Lives through Literature: Using Narrative to Teach Social Sciences and Promote Students' Epistemological Growth.
Boyatzis, Chris J.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v5 n1 p31-45 1994
This article argues for the inclusion of narrative literature in college social science courses, since such literature can enhance students' understanding of scientific content by elucidating theoretical and empirical concepts with concrete examples. Evidence of the effectiveness of autobiographical literature is presented, and suggestions for integrating literature into courses are offered. (MDM)
