This publication contains practical suggestions for the teacher of high school students who are not enrolled in college preparatory programs. A list of character traits common to these students and general suggestions for appropriate curriculums, teaching methods, and scheduling precede (1) a literature unit involving a sequence of lessons on Steinbeck's "The Pearl"; (2) suggestions for spelling instruction, with a list of spelling demons, "capsule lessons," one full-length model lesson, and suggested teaching methods; (3) a seven-step approach to composition, specific discussions of oral and written expression in grades 10, 11, and 12, and suggestions for preparing a "composition instruction sheet" for students; (4) exercises for building vocabulary and lists of grammatical skills needed by these students; and (5) a discussion of testing and evaluation. Books and articles on the problems of teaching general-course students are listed in a selected annotated bibliography. (JS)
