Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond. Div. of Secondary Education.
To improve the basic curriculum in English instruction for low-achieving pupils, this bulletin brings together resource units; a description of an individualized, free-reading program, and bibliographies of materials. The bulk of the publication consists of 26 resource units (e.g., "Animals in Literature,""Faces of War,""Beowulf, an Epic Hero") designed for modification into instructional units; each unit indicates the appropriate grade level, suggests teacher objectives and culminating activities, and provides a bibliography when needed. The individualized-reading program description covers rationale, requisites for the program, and ways of organizing it. Bibliographies are provided on books for the teacher, basal textbooks, supplementary books and magazines for the students, books for the individualized reading program, films and filmstrips, phonograph records, tape recordings, and reproductions of paintings.
