A CURRICULUM FOR ENGLISH, STUDENT PACKET, GRADE 12.
Nebraska Univ., Lincoln. Curriculum Development Center.
THE LITERATURE PROGRAM OF THE GRADE 12 STUDENT PACKET OF THE NEBRASKA ENGLISH CURRICULUM CONSISTS OF A SELECTIVE SURVEY OF ENGLISH LITERATURE FROM THE RENAISSANCE TO THE 20TH CENTURY. IT BEGINS WITH A UNIT ON SHAKESPEAREAN TRAGEDY IN WHICH STUDENTS READ REVENGE TRAGEDIES--SENECA'S "THYESTES" AND KYD'S "THE SPANISH TRAGEDY"--AS PREPARATION FOR THE READING OF "HAMLET." THE SECOND UNIT, "THE CHRISTIAN EPIC," RELIES ON READINGS IN PREVIOUS PACKETS FOR BACKGROUND ON THE EPIC, AND CENTERS ON BOOK I OF SPENSER'S "THE FAERIE QUEENE" AND MILTON'S "PARADISE LOST." THE NEXT TWO UNITS, ON AUGUSTAN SATIRE, ARE DESIGNED TO HELP STUDENTS UNDERSTAND MAN'S RELATIONSHIP TO SOCIETY IN THE NEW ENLIGHTENMENT WORLD. THE UNIT ENTITLED "THE WRITER AS REBEL AND PROPHET" PROVIDES MATERIAL FOR THE ANALYSIS OF THE ROMANTIC REBELLION AND ITS POETIC MANIFESTATIONS IN THE ODE, THE SONNET, AND THE ALLEGORICAL ROMANCE. IN THE FINAL LITERATURE UNITS, THREE VIEWS OF THE 19TH-CENTURY ENGLISH CLASS SYSTEM AS SEEN IN "PRIDE AND PREJUDICE,""GREAT EXPECTATIONS," AND "THE MAYOR OF CASTERBRIDGE" ARE EXAMINED. THE LANGUAGE AND COMPOSITION PROGRAM CULMINATES THE STUDENTS' STUDY OF RHETORIC THROUGH THE EXAMINATION OF THE GRAMMATICAL SYSTEM, THE CONCEPTUAL PATTERNS OF THE PARAGRAPH AND LARGER UNITS, AND THE IMPORTANCE OF DEDUCTIVE LOGIC IN COMPOSITION. UNITS INCLUDE INFORMATIVE OVERVIEWS AND INTRODUCTORY MATERIALS, STUDY AND DISCUSSION QUESTIONS, COMPOSITION TOPICS, 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 12 IS TE 000 069. (DL)
