A CURRICULUM FOR ENGLISH, STUDENT PACKET, GRADE 10.
Nebraska Univ., Lincoln. Curriculum Development Center.
THE STUDENT PACKET FOR GRADE 10 OF THE NEBRASKA ENGLISH CURRICULUM BEGINS WITH FOUR UNITS ON LITERATURE, EACH STRESSING AN ASPECT OF MAN'S CONCEPTION OF THE WORLD. THROUGH A STUDY OF THE LITERATURE OF SEVERAL CULTURES, WRITTEN AT VARIOUS TIMES, STUDENTS FIRST CONSIDER "MAN AND NATURE, MAN'S PICTURE OF NATURE." THE SECOND UNIT, "MAN AND SOCIETY, THE LEADER AND THE GROUP," ATTEMPTS TO TEACH STUDENTS THAT LEADERSHIP IS THE PRODUCT OF AN INTERACTION BETWEEN PARTICULAR MEN AND PARTICULAR SOCIETIES, AND THAT IT REFLECTS CERTAIN IDEAS ABOUT THOSE SOCIETIES. AN EXAMINATION OF THE THEME OF "SIN AND LONELINESS" AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO MAN'S VIEW OF THE WORLD AS SEEN THROUGH MORAL LAW COMES NEXT. IN THIS UNIT, SUCH WORKS AS HARDY'S "THE RETURN OF THE NATIVE" AND STEINBECK'S "THE PEARL" ARE READ. FINALLY, THE UNIT ON "TRAGEDY" SYNTHESIZES AND RELATES ALL THE PREVIOUS GRADE-LEVEL UNITS THROUGH THE STUDY OF SOPHOCLES'"OEDIPUS THE KING," MARLOWE'S "DOCTOR FAUSTUS," AND SYNGE'S "RIDERS TO THE SEA." THE LANGUAGE UNITS, "THE RHETORIC OF THE SENTENCE" AND "RHETORIC--INDUCTION AND THE WHOLE COMPOSITION" ARE TRANSITIONAL BETWEEN THE STUDY OF SYNTAX IN PREVIOUS GRADE UNITS AND THE INVESTIGATION OF FORMAL RHETORICAL CONSIDERATIONS IN THE 11TH AND 12TH GRADES. UNITS CONTAIN OVERVIEWS AND BACKGROUND MATERIAL, READING AND DISCUSSION QUESTIONS, COMPOSITION ASSIGNMENTS, SUPPLEMENTARY READING LISTS, LANGUAGE EXERCISES, AND LITERARY SELECTIONS NOT READILY AVAILABLE IN TEXTBOOKS. THIS MANUAL IS AVAILABLE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA CURRICULUM CENTER, 231 ANDREWS HALL, LINCOLN, NEBRASKA 68508. THE RELATED TEACHER PACKET FOR GRADE 10 IS TE 000 065. (DL)
