Teaching literature to adolescents: plays by Alan B Howes( Book )

9 editions published between 1968 and 1970 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book designed for the high school drama teacher, several commonly-taught plays are used to illustrate (1) ways to use the adolescents' experience with tv to increase their appreciation of other forms of drama, (2) practical means for removing some of the barriers to understanding plays and producing an active response to the world of the play, (3) adolescents' interests--especially in character--and ways to capitalize on these interests, (4) approaches to dramatic form as a means by which the playwright generates audience response, and (5) stereotyping and oversimplification, special difficulties when trying to understand the tragic hero. Materials include suggestions for classroom approaches to specific dramatic concepts, such as visualization and audience response; interviews with Arthur Miller and Rod Serling; and the full texts of 3 plays--Arthur Miller's "Pussycat and the Expert Plumber Who Was a Man," Rod Serling's "Requiem for a Heavyweight," and a Japanese Noh play, "The Damask Drum."

Teaching literature to adolescents: novels by Alan B Howes( Book )

7 editions published between 1968 and 1972 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers suggestions for prospective and practicing English teachers on ways to help students appreciate both drama and fiction. Some of the questions treated are the differences between the reading of drama and fiction; the critical tools a teacher may use in approaches to specific works; how a novel may be taught on different levels ("Huckleberry Finn" is the example discussed); how literature by black writers may be used in the classroom; and how the teacher may help an individual student to pursue his own talent and interest at the same time the class as a group shares common experiences. One section of the book contains interviews with three novelists, Alan Paton, John Knowles, and Conrad Ricter, all of whom are popular with adolescent as well as adult readers. An appendix includes two other versions of "Huckleberry Finn," the last two chapters of John Seelye's "The True Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," which is a retelling of Twain's story, and some selections from the script of the 1938 screenplay of the novel. A bibliography of paperback editions of the works cited in the text is included. (Author/DI)

Tagmemics; the study of units beyond the sentence by Kenneth L Pike( Book )

1 edition published in 1964 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In one essay of this collection of four, Kenneth L. Pike explores the value of exercises which are based on axioms about language structure and which are designed specifically to develop writing competence; he lists eight tagmemic principles accompanied by suggested exercises. In another essay, Pike differentiates the roles of linguist and literary critic and applies linguistic analysis to jokes. Hubert M. English, Jr., Demonstrates how using five of Pike's "universal concepts" of perspective can improve the content of student compositions and foster invention. Alan B. Howes emphasizes the student's need to sharpen his perception and consider the subject from several angles before writing about literature. He illustrates the value of Pike's model of particle, wave, and field, developed for the study of language, for encouraging the flexibility of perspective in the study of literature. (Jm)

1 edition published in 1956 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Doomed to become the 'sport of fortune' by an interruption at the crucial moment of conception, Tristram Shandy's life lurches from one mishap to another: his nose crushed by the doctor's forceps during birth, christened with the worng name, an unfortunate incident involving a slamming sash window. Though everything occurs between parlor and garden, Tristram's excitable father, bewildered mother, and Uncle Toby provide ample opportunity for the digressions and madcap events that structure this seminal novel
