Rhetoric: A Unified Approach to English Curricula. A Report of the English Study Committee of the Office of Field Development. Curriculum Series No. 9.
Ontario Inst. for Studies in Education, Toronto.
This report is intended to focus attention on the fact that disparate forms of English communication all belong to one language and that the principles of rhetoric are central to a unified approach to the teaching of rhetoric. After describing the history of rhetoric and the need for a modern rhetoric-oriented curriculum, it presents course, unit, and lesson plans for rhetoric instruction at the elementary, secondary, and university levels. The chief recommendation of the report is for the preparation of a trial curriculum based on rhetorical principles for grades K-13, and the establishment of several other development- and research-oriented projects. The included bibliography of rhetorical literature is divided into four main parts: bibliographies, primary texts, historical and critical studies, and works of contemporary theory and practice. (DD)
