When we're zeroing in on a specific curriculum area and want to use literary sources, most of us go to the computer or catalog database. We pull out all the books that relate to that area in a clear and distinct manner and use them to strengthen the subject at hand. If we're working with the Civil War era, for instance, we'd find the picture books, novels, and non-fiction books and the multimedia that similarly applies. In this column, however, I thought it might be interesting to go beyond that and reach for the books that can be made meaningful in a larger sense to the subject at hand.
