A Hank of Hair and a Piece of Bone.

Even though the English teacher may lack funds to acquire conventional teaching aids, he can, nevertheless, find many available resources to stimulate the interest of his students. A recording by Bill Cosby, for instance, can be studied as an example of satire and can encourage discussion and writing. A record festival in the classroom not only lets the teacher hear what the young are thinking but also gives the students practice in organizing, selecting entries, evaluating, and writing advertisements and invitations. Furthermore, the lyrics of some current hit songs can be compared to poems, plays, and novels, or they can be used as springboards for the writing and tape-recording of original poetry. Other resources are plays given on television and in the community, old sets of anthologies, columns in various newspapers or magazines, talks by fellow teachers, and novels and articles read aloud by the teacher himself.
