Up the Down Spiral with English: Guidelines, Project Insight.
Catholic Board of Education, Diocese of Cleveland, OH.
This curriculum guide presents the philosophy, objectives, and processes which unify a student-centered English program based on Jerome Bruner's concept of the spiral curriculum. To illustrate the spiraling of the learning process (i.e., engagement, perception, interpretation, evaluation, and personal integration), the theme of "hero" is traced from grades 7-12 with skill and concept checklists, process charts, and physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and personal sketches of various adolescent stages provided for the teacher. Included are brief discussions of testing and grading, a 12th-grade unit outline for 20th century literature, and bibliographies on general resources, multimedia, literature, language, and composition. (See also TE 002 062.) (MF)
