College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY. Commission on English.
Literature, language, and composition are integrated in this collection of 30 model teaching units for grades 9-12. The units are concerned with (1) the explication and comparison of novels by Hemingway, Wilder, Kipling, and Knowles, (2) short story techniques used by writers from Poe to Joyce, (3) poetic structure and themes as demonstrated in poems by Milton, Eliot, and others, (4) dramatic conventions, contemporary themes, and literary allusion in modern drama as illustrated in "J.B." and "The Glass Menagerie," (5) dictionary usage, the language of essays, and problems of language changes and usage, and (6) the modification of the writer's tone and voice to suit his purpose, audience, and materials. Included are such instructional materials as poems, cartoons, and prints; teacher notes which suggest class activities, heuristic questions, and writing assignments; and a large sampling of student writing, graded and analyzed according to College Entrance Examination Board standards.
