Elective English Programs in Junior and Senior High Schools.
Kubicek, Linda, Comp.
Fourteen program outlines of elective English curriculums, representing 13 school systems, are collected in one package to serve as a convenient resource for examples of elective programs in English--two junior high school programs and 12 senior high ones. For all of the programs, descriptions of the contents of individual courses, indicating their lengths, are provided. Types of courses described range from seminars on literary figures to workshops in which the students themselves determine what they study. Additional information given for some courses includes the rationale for initiating the elective curriculum, an account of the scheduling of the several courses, an explanation of "phases" which indicate skills needed for the courses, and the requirements for graduation. A bibliography of articles and guides on elective English programs is appended. (LK)
