Critical Encounters in Secondary English

Author: Deborah Appleman
Publisher: Teachers College Press
ISBN: 9780807756232
Release Date: 2014-12-01
Genre: Education

Because of the emphasis placed on nonfiction and informational texts by the Common Core State Standards, literature teachers are re-evaluating their curriculum and looking for thoughtful ways to incorporate nonfiction into their courses. They are also rethinking their pedagogy as they consider ways to approach texts that are outside the usual fare of secondary literature classrooms. The Third Edition of Critical Encounters in Secondary English provides an integrated approach to incorporating nonfiction and informational texts into the literature classroom. Grounded in solid theory with new field-tested classroom activities, this new edition shows teachers how to adapt practices that have always defined good pedagogy to the new generation of standards for literature instruction. New for this edition includes; a new preface and a new introduction that discusses the CCSS and their implications for literature instruction; lists of nonficiton texts at the end of each chapter related to the critical lens described in that chapter; a new chapter on new historicism, a critical lens uniquely suited to interpreting nonfiction and informational sources; new classroom activities created and field-tested specifically for use with nonfiction texts, and additional activities that demonstrate how informational texts can be used in conjunction with traditional literary texts.

Genre: Fiction

Ausgezeichnet mit dem Pulitzer-Preis 1953, ein Jahr später ausdrücklich von der Nobelpreis-Jury erwähnt: Hemingways faszinierende Novelle über den kubanischen Fischer Santiago. Allein fährt er in einem kleinen Ruderboot aufs Meer. Vierundachtzig Tage hat er nichts gefangen. Sein junger Helfer wurde auf ein anderes Boot geschickt – der alte Mann sei vom Unglück verfolgt, sagen die Eltern. Doch nachdem Santiago wieder einen ganzen Tag lang umsonst gewartet hat, beißt ein sehr großer Fisch an und zieht ihn und das Boot hinaus aufs offene Meer. Ein ungleicher Kampf beginnt. «Der Klassiker erstrahlt in schlichter Schönheit.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) «Ernest Hemingway, der Magier mit den schlichten Hauptsätzen und dem Gespür für alles Sinnliche. Im Grunde zelebriert sein Blick eine Liebe zur Schöpfung.» (Die Zeit) Für Hemingway-Liebhaber: Die berühmte Novelle in neuer Übersetzung und ansprechender Ausstattung.
