Topics in English for the Secondary School.
Written primarily for the secondary school English teacher, this book suggests specific projects to extend the range and variety of the English curriculum and to develop the students' language skills and imaginations. Part I contains discussions of the nature and purposes of English lessons, the place of literature in education, methods for teaching poetry and exploring language, the importance of oral reading in the English classroom, and the techniques involved in organizing and completing an English project. Part II examines over 30 possible topics for projects in reading, discussion, and composition--e.g., outsiders, Christmas, lighthouses, miners, pestilence and famine, and predators. With each topic, guidelines are suggested for subject range, supplementary and oral reading, writing assignments, oral reports, language experiences, and ancillary activities. (JB)
