MODEL FOR AN ADVANCED PLACEMENT ENGLISH COURSE.
HART, JOHN A.; HAYES, ANN L.
THE DESIGN OF THIS COURSE WAS BASED ON THE BELIEF THAT GOOD DISCUSSION IS A WAY TO INCREASE UNDERSTANDING. ALTHOUGH THE COURSE IS PRESENTED IN DETAILED FORM, LIKE A SYLLABUS, IT WAS NOT INTENDED BY THE AUTHORS TO BE RIGIDLY FOLLOWED LIKE A SCHEDULE BUT, INSTEAD, TO BE USED AS A FRAMEWORK TO HELP THE TEACHER IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A DISCUSSION COURSE. THE PLAN CALLS FOR 2 DAYS A WEEK TO BE DEVOTED TO DISCUSSION OF WRITING, TO IN-CLASS WRITING ASSIGNMENTS, AND TO CRITICISM OF STUDENTS' WRITING BY THE TEACHER AND THE CLASS. PLANS FOR HOMEWORK WRITING ASSIGNMENTS ARE INCLUDED. THE DISCUSSION SESSIONS PLANNED FOR THE OTHER 3 DAYS A WEEK ARE CENTERED AROUND READINGS ORGANIZED BY GENRE, OR THE KIND OF WRITING OF THE SELECTION. THE READINGS CONSIST OF SELECTIONS FROM NARRATION, POETRY, SATIRE, AND FICTION. (AL)
