Ideas for Teaching English, Grades 7-8-9: Successful Practices in the Junior High School.
National Council of Teachers of English, Champaign, IL.
These suggested teaching practices for the junior high school are in the form of reprinted journal articles and special reports from classroom teachers. Ideas for teaching composition deal specifically with descriptive, narrative, and creative writing; helping students develop their imaginations; assigning topics for compositions; and evaluating student writing. In reading and literature, teaching practices are suggested for improving reading and literary skills; using the junior novel in the classroom; reaching both the gifted and the less gifted; building vocabularies; and reading poetry, newspapers, biographies, myths, and certain specific works. Additional articles contain suggestions for teaching language and grammar, spelling, listening, speaking, critical thinking, handwriting, the dictionary, and the mass media. A 10-page bibliography on junior high school materials completes the volume. (JS)
