Part 2 focuses on the language arts program: (1) designing the program, (2) building instructional units, (3) reaching youth through literature, (4) developing competence in reading, speaking, listening, grammar, usage, and spelling, (5) meeting youth's needs through writing, (6) making communication arts and skills reinforce each other, and (7) meeting college entrance requirements in English. Bibliographies of books, periodicals, pamphlets, and recordings are provided at the end of chapters. (See ED 021 877, ED 023 669, ED 023 670, and ED 024 687 for other volumes in the series.) (JM)
