Words and What They do to You: Beginning Lessons in General Semantics for Junior and Senior High School.
Minteer, Catherine
The 16 lessons in this course--the result of experiments conducted with 7th-and 8th-grade pupils at Nettelhorst School in Chicago--deal with "the relationship between language and thought, with the scientific use of language, and with some misuses of language." Each lesson has two parts: (1) a "Teacher Summary" which gives the basic semantic concept from which the lesson is developed, a list of selected readings, common errors involving the concept under consideration, and lesson objectives, and (2) a "Presentation of Pupils" which suggests experiments by which pupils can test the concept, ways of gathering evidence, conclusions to be drawn, applications of the concept, and discussion questions.
