More Than English (What's Happening in the Senior High English Curriculum of the Anchorage Borough School District) and Addendum, 1970-71.
Anchorage Borough School District, AK.
The dual objectives of this nongraded, phase-elective program in English are to teach critical analysis in reading, listening, and viewing, and to teach logical organization in thinking, writing, and speaking. Provided are the school district requirements, an explanation of the five phase levels, and brief outlines of each of 57 course offerings which include course descriptions, objectives, and suggested classroom materials, reference books for teachers, and teaching approaches. The subject areas treated are composition (e.g., business English, creative writing, and journalism); speech and drama (e.g., fundamentals of acting, play production, debate, and theatrical makeup); reading (e.g., corrective reading and reading workshop); language (e.g., grammar--traditional and transformational); literature (e.g., humor in literature, existential literature, literary criticism, Russian literature, Asian literature, nonfiction, biography, and the modern American novel); mass media; independent study; and humanities. An Addendum describes new course offerings for 1970-71. (MF)
