New Directions: New Dimensions, English Language Arts in Kentucky.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort.
Twenty-nine articles in this publication describe the efforts of Kentucky educators to keep pace with accelerating educational change and recognize the outstanding work of local school systems and individual teachers. New directions in English programs are discussed first: the flexibility provided by English electives and individualized instruction programs, the new emphasis on linguistically-oriented programs in secondary education, special programs for able students, more realistic programs for slow learners in English and the social sciences, and the improvement of reading proficiency. The articles of the second part of the publication present new dimensions to broaden and deepen language arts instruction: newspapers in the classroom; creativity through the use of prints, special projects, and poetry; and new teaching techniques and learning activities, such as dramatics and experimental writing.
