ENGLISH FOR VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS.
JOHNSTON, FRANK P.; AND OTHERS
AN ENGLISH PROGRAM WAS DESIGNED TO MEET THE PRINCIPLES AND AIMS OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION. THE STUDENT IN A VOCATIONAL SCHOOL HAS BEEN MOTIVATED BY A DESIRE TO PREPARE HIMSELF FOR A SPECIFIC OCCUPATION. THE VOCATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL ENGLISH COURSE SHOULD CAPITALIZE ON THIS MOTIVATION BY OFFERING THE STUDENT COMMUNICATION SKILLS CLOSELY RELATED TO HIS TRADE EXPERIENCE. AS A CURRICULUM GUIDE, THIS HANDBOOK IS DESIGNED TO ASSIST THE VOCATIONAL ENGLISH TEACHER IN SETTING UP A VITAL PROGRAM FOR HIS STUDENTS. IT OFFERS SUGGESTED PROCEDURES WHICH ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE OR MODIFICATION, BUT WHICH HAVE BEEN FOUND TO BE FEASIBLE UNDER ACTUAL TEACHING CONDITIONS. THE COURSE CONTENT FOR 4 YEARS AND SPECIFIC PROCEDURES FOR THE FIRST AND SECOND YEARS ARE OUTLINED. THE PROCEDURE SHEETS EXPLAIN AS SPECIFICALLY AS POSSIBLE HOW THE COURSE MAY BE TAUGHT. GENERAL SUBJECT AREAS COVERED BY THE PROCEDURE SHEETS INCLUDE AN ORIENTATION ON STUDY METHODS, READING, ORAL EXPRESSION, WRITING, AND THE MECHANICS OF ENGLISH.
