Elective English Programs in Junior and Senior High Schools; Eleven Program Descriptions.
Harvey, Linda, Comp.
Eleven program outlines of elective English curriculums for grades 7-12 are collected in this package to serve as a convenient resource of examples of a variety of elective programs in English. Types of programs included range from non-graded "mini-electives," available 2 days a week, to curriculums made up of 30 twelve-week phase-elective courses. One of the program descriptions includes an "Attitudinal Inventory" given to students at the beginning and end of the elective curriculum's trial period. The program outlines represent both large and small schools, public and private, as well as a State Department of Public Instruction. Rationales for instituting electives, annotations of course titles, and explanations of the scheduling of courses are included in the descriptions. A bibliography of articles and guides on elective English programs is appended. (See also ED 041 182 for another compilation of elective English program descriptions.) (LH)
