Phase-Elective English: An Experimental Program for Grades Eleven and Twelve.
Jefferson County Board of Education, Louisville, KY.
This report of an experimental program, developed at the Jeffersontown High School in Louisville, Kentucky, describes 26 nongraded elective English courses which are divided into five ability-level phases. Phase 1 and 2 courses (for less advanced students) deal with such areas as developmental reading, vocational English, oral communication, humanities, and composition; phases 3 through 5 (requiring more highly developed skills and understandings) focus on creative writing, poetry, theater arts, Shakespeare, and English and American literature. Literary objectives, an outline of content, a week-by-week description of activities, suggested teaching approaches, a list of supplementary materials, and a bibliography are provided for each course, which lasts 12 weeks. Appended is the school's book selection and material reevaluation policy. (MF)
