Literature As Active Reading

Annotated Research

Question: How is literature in British elementary schools responded to?

Answer: “In British elementary schools, reading literature is often presented as undemanding or relaxing rather than as an activity that may offer an opportunity for active teaching and learning.” R Poole. 1987. P. 226.

Comment: Is the attitude much different in American elementary schools where children’s literature is viewed as an opportunity for enjoyment and fun? RayS.
