 Using Literature to Help Children Cope With Problems
Literature can be used as an effective tool to help children deal with emotional and social problems.
When using literature to help children cope with problems, educators should consider the purpose of the learning task, decide who will participate, and plan to relate the story character's problem to children's lived experiences (Jalongo, 1983).
Using children's literature as a tool for problem solving is a meaningful way for teachers to understand and help children with problems.

 What was Comparative Literature?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Comparative literature as an intellectual field arose in the nineteenth century, a counterpart of the equally new fields of comparative anatomy, comparative law, and comparative philology.
The intellectual field and later the academic discipline of comparative literature, then, circulated and developed in nineteenth century Europe as a gentlemanly (and evaluative) inquiry into what constituted the worthy contemporary literatures of Europe, the exchanges between those literatures, and their links to shared traditions of the past.
It is as noteworthy that the circulation and institutionalization of the concept of comparative literature was also concomitant with the colonial expansion of European states throughout the globe and with the intra-European contest over who would control which colonies.

 Lit Search
This literature search paper presents impact, both positive and negative, by modern man toward the fragile coastal waters of the Caribbean.
The fact remains that the Caribbean is not sufficiently flushed by the open sea because of geographic ridges and deep basins causing pollutants to linger for long periods of time (Dumka, 1973).
As momentum gained in the background literature, by a more selective process in choosing political and economic authors, a very slight tendency surfaced that human behavior toward pollution could improve with economic development in Central America countries (Marx-Delson, 1981, James and Ginsburg, 1979, Vance, 1985).

 Useful Instructional Strategies
Modeling takes place first through the literature itself (Walmsley and Walp, 1990) and the way it is organized in thematic units.
This is done by using literature that has been read as models to show the use of strategies and skills (Walmsley and Walp, 1990).
A thematic organization in which themes are carefully developed with related pieces of literature also supports the activation and development of prior knowledge; by reading several related selections, students build on their prior knowledge from previous selections as they read the next selection.
