The Anthological Project.
Johns, Trevor
CITE Newsletter (Centre for Information on the Teaching of English), v2 n2 p9-12 Jan 1969
Anthological projects, in which students gather and produce material for a group product (e.g., class newspapers, magazines, radio shows), can reawaken students' interest in English and benefit all ability levels. The novelty of the projects and the promise of tangible results initially motivates the students, and their involvement and the criticism of their peers keeps them working once they begin. Although anthological projects must be interspersed with more traditional English work to insure the students' mastery of basic skills, the interest, experience in writing and reading, and the motivations for activities in the projects carry over to the less inspiring requirements of the curriculum. (A book, "English by Project," student and teacher editions, by Trevor Johns and Norman Hendry, is forthcoming from Heinemann Educational Books, London.) (LH)
