THE AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT TODAY, A CASEBOOK AND A GUIDE TO RESEARCH. RHETORIC CURRICULUM V, TEACHER AND STUDENT VERSIONS.
KITZHABER, ALBERT R.
IN THIS FINAL UNIT OF THE GRADE 11 RHETORIC CURRICULUM, STUDENTS ARE ASKED TO APPLY WHAT THEY HAVE LEARNED IN EARLIER UNITS BY WRITING A RESEARCH PAPER BASED ON READINGS FROM DIVERSE SOURCES BUT UNIFIED IN THEME--"THE AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT TODAY." THE CASEBOOK WHICH IS PROVIDED LISTS READINGS ON THE THEME AND MAKES SUGGESTIONS FOR PAPERS USING EITHER ONLY THE CASEBOOK READINGS OR THE CASEBOOK AND ADDITIONAL OUTSIDE RESEARCH. THE UNIT ALSO PROVIDES A RESEARCH GUIDE WHICH CONTAINS INFORMATION ON THE NATURE OF RESEARCH, PLAGIARISM, THE PRESUPPOSITIONS OF RESEARCH, FACT-FINDING, THE RELIABILITY OF OPINIONS, THESIS DEVELOPMENT, AND FORM FOR FOOTNOTES AND BIBLIOGRAPHIES. THE EMPHASIS OF THIS UNIT, HOWEVER, IS ON BASIC PROBLEMS OF RESEARCH AND NOT ON MATTERS OF FORMAT. THE TEACHER VERSION CONTAINS A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO THE UNIT WHICH ELABORATES ITS AIMS AND EMPHASES AND PROVIDES SUGGESTIONS FOR GUIDING STUDENTS' DISCUSSION OF THE CASEBOOK MATERIAL AND WRITING OF THE RESEARCH PAPER. SEE ALSO ED 010 129 THROUGH ED 010 160, ED 010 803 THROUGH ED 010 832, TE 000 195 THROUGH TE 000 220, AND TE 000 227 THROUGH TE 000 249. (DL)
