Description

Applebee provides a scholarly appraisal of the literature curriculum at the middle school and secondary levels, based on a series of field studies examining literature instruction in public and private schools. He explains that the selections chosen for study in American secondary schools are neither as inappropriate as many critics suggest nor as well-chosen as the profession might want them to be. Applebee concludes that a reexamination of literature curriculum and instruction is necessary to provide teachers with a unifying framework that will better inform their decisions about what and how they teach.
