ENGLISH CURRICULUM. SUGGESTIONS FOR ENRICHING THE CURRICULUM FOR HONOR STUDENTS IN THE SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL.
District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC.
THE HONORS COURSE IS IDENTICAL IN OUTLINE WITH THAT OF REGULAR COLLEGE PREPARATORY CLASSES. THE COURSES ARE ENRICHED TO ADVANCE TO THE STUDENTS' FULL ABILITIES THE QUALITY AND MATURITY OF THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS. CAREFUL, REFLECTIVE STUDY FOR QUALITY WORK INSTEAD OF A HURRIED QUANTITY OF MATERIALS IS DESIRED. THE PROGRAM SHOULD DEVELOP CRITICAL THINKING BY SUPPLEMENTAL READING, ANALYSIS, AND ENRICHMENT. WRITING ASSIGNMENTS SHOULD REQUIRE MATURE, ANALYTICAL THINKING AND SHOULD CHALLENGE THE STUDENT TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR IMPROVEMENT IN WRITING AND BUILDING OF VOCABULARY. STUDENTS SHOULD BE PREPARED TO TAKE COLLEGE BOARD ENTRANCE EXAMS BY LEARNING TO WRITE WELL ABOUT WORTHWHILE SUBJECTS. ADVANCED WORK IN LITERATURE IS CONCERNED AGAIN WITH QUALITY RATHER THAN QUANTITY OF STUDENTS' READING. SPEAKING AND LISTENING SHOULD DEVELOP VOCABULARY AND FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION. SPECIAL UNITS SHOULD BE USED TO ENRICH THE PROGRAM. OTHER SCHOOL SYSTEMS MADE SUGGESTIONS TO DEVELOP A SUCCESSFUL HONORS PROGRAM IN ENGLISH.
