English in Practice: Secondary English Departments at Work.
Summerfield, Geoffrey, Ed.; Tunnicliffe, Stephen, Ed.
In this collection, six heads of English departments in different types of secondary schools describe their aims, their methods of teaching and of running departments, and the problems they encountered in their work as English teachers. These department heads, representing three mixed comprehensive schools, two direct grant boys' grammar schools, and one girls' technical high school, provide statements of their teaching practice in England and Wales which are applicable to American classroom situations as well. Some of the topics touched on in the collection include audiovisual aids, drama in the classroom, English projects and themes, examinations, teaching loads, the teaching of reading, and team teaching. A glossary of British secondary education terms and an English-teaching bibliography are included. (DD)
