Synopsis

Approaches to Literature Through Genre by Lucille W. Van Vliet

This text aims to help teachers and librarians to stimulate their middle school students' reading curiosity. Chapter 1 presents a curriculum planning blueprint for teaching literature to students. Chapters 2-9 address a particular genre humor, mystery, fantasy, science fiction, realistic fiction, historical fiction, animal, and adventure - and how it can motivate student readers. Each chapter contains an element of literature, and provides detailed annotated resources illustrating the use of each. The author chose sources and materials based on a specific set of guidelines; general literary quality and accuracy; availability; readability and interest levels; ethnic, racial and sex-role representation; availability of media support materials; and recommendations in reliable journals and guides. Suggested teaching methods for teaching specific genres, student activities, and professional and student resources are fully described throughout the book.
