English Curriculum Guide: Senior High Program.
Mehlville R-9 School District, St. Louis, MO.
Prepared by the teaching staff and curriculum office of the Mehlville (Missouri) School District, this curriculum guide for senior high school English presents a dual focus on language (grammar, usage, composition) and literature (fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama, media). Following a statement of the philosophy of the program, the guide outlines the program's requirements, including graduation requirements in English, placement criteria, and college preparatory credits. This list of requirements is followed by a list of textbooks and instructional materials, and an overview of the program. The overview includes objectives for literature, composition, language skills, and grammar and usage, listed sequentially for the program's three levels of English. The remaining two sections discuss the English elective program and suggested teaching methods. (HTH)
