Curriculum in English II: Planning an Integrated Unit.
Mullican, James S.
Intended for use by beginning teachers of English, this booklet illustrates English curriculum planning and teaching practices and principles set forth in an earlier work. The first chapter of the booklet discusses the importance of careful instructional planning and explains three principles essential to effective English teaching: (1) focus on what students, not teachers, do; (2) use inductive rather than deductive instructional methods; and (3) develop integrated, not fragmented, curricula. The second chapter shows how to apply the three principles in the development of a unit of study; and the third chapter presents an actual unit concerning the persona in poetry, short films, and narrative prose.
