The Relation between Reading and Literature

by Sterling Leonard - 1925

As with other content subjects discussed in Chapter V of this report, the teaching of literature, in the more restricted meaning of the term, presents special problems which have to be considered in a survey of reading. Literature has in the past been most often taught by analytic methods supposedly or actually appropriate for reading as study. The chief purpose of this chapter is to present the need for a portion of the school day devoted entirely to recreational, as distinguished from work-type reading. It will include a discussion of the following points: (a) the purposes of literature in the school program; (b) the principles for selecting literature for grades and high schools; and (c) the principles of effective method in teaching literature.
