Integration of English.
Faux, Patricia; Larsen, Charlotte
Arizona English Bulletin, v11 n3 p11-15 Apr 1969
Language skills should be taught in an integrated curriculum that combines usage, composition, literature, reading, and spelling. In such a curriculum, the teacher has a wide choice of procedures and materials, the student sees language applied in realistic situations, and the individual skills and concepts reinforce each other. Since no one book presents such a completely fused curriculum, the teacher must plan his own program to meet the students' needs, correlating teaching activities with the focus and goals of the unit and with the literary works available. If the school is not departmentalized, integrated curriculums can also be set up between teachers of English and teachers of science, history, health, and home economics. In core curriculums, where one teacher is responsible for language arts and social studies, American history or civics can be integrated with the English curriculum. (Activities and lesson plans for the first week of a 4-week thematic literature unit, "Fear," are outlined.) (LH)
