Description : This edited collection will turn a critical spotlight on the set of texts that has constituted the high school canon of literature for decades. By employing a set of fresh, vibrant critical lenses—such as youth studies and disabilities studies— that are often unfamiliar to advanced students and scholars of secondary English, this book provides divergent approaches to traditional readings and pedagogical practices surrounding these familiar works. By introducing and applying these interpretive frames to the field of secondary English education, this book demonstrates that there is more to say about these texts, ways to productively problematize them, and to reconfigure how they may be read and used in the classroom.

Description : Because of the emphasis placed on nonfiction and informational texts by the Common Core State Standards, literature teachers all over the country 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 the Third Edition: A new preface and new introduction that discusses the CCSS and their implications for literature instruction. Lists of nonfiction 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. Additional activities that demonstrate how informational texts can be used in conjunction with traditional literary texts. “What a smart and useful book!” —Mike Rose, University of California, Los Angeles “[This book] has enriched my understanding both of teaching literature and of how I read. I know of no other book quite like it.” —Michael W. Smith, Temple University, College of Education “I have recommended Critical Encounters to every group of preservice and practicing teachers that I have taught or worked with and I will continue to do so.” —Ernest Morrell, director of the Institute for Urban and Minority Education (IUME), Teachers College, Columbia University

Description : Daniel R. Schwarz defines the theory and method of Anglo-American novel criticism in terms of principles he calls humanistic formalism. Because Anglo-American criticism has tended to sacrifice theory for method and philosophic inquiry for close analyses of the text, the theoretical assumptions o fits novel criticism have been neglected. Yet, based on a coherent but heterogeneous aesthetic, it has produced a body of impressive analyses of the English novel. The author shows that, beginning with James and Lubbock, critics as diverse as Forster, Leavis, Watt, Van Ghent, Kettle, and Kermode share common assumptions. Schwarz defines the common humanistic assumption of this criticism, and one might define his perspective as that of a progressive traditionalist. While the book is a spirited defense of Anglo-American criticism, Schwarz seeks to contribute to a dialogue between Anglo-American humanistic criticism and the ideas proposed by structuralism, Marxism, and deconstruction.
