Essays on the Teaching of English: Reports of the Yale Conference on the Teaching of English.
Gordon, Edward J., Ed.; Noyes, Edward S., Ed.
In this collection of 18 essays drawn from reports of the Yale Conferences on the Teaching of English, high school teachers present ways to handle problems relevant to all English classrooms. Essays on the teaching of language include a discussion of grammar, a definition and illustration of language study, and a consideration of the kinds of language teaching. Topics of essays on the teaching of writing are the content of student compositions, the syntax of English constructions, a composition course built on logical analysis, expository and creative writing, and the correction of paragraphs by both teacher and students. Essays on literature discuss individual reading and the teaching of drama, novels, and poetry. Literary works considered are "Julius Caesar,""Huckleberry Finn,""Great Expectations," and "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner." Bibliographies and suggestions for classroom exercises are appended to the essays. (SW)
