Patterns and Models for Teaching English--1964.
Shugrue, Michael F.; Hillocks, George, Jr.
This collection of 15 descriptions of teaching practices was designed to aid classroom teachers and to inform curriculum supervisors, administrators, and the general public of the wide range and complexity of activities within the profession. Two articles emphasize the place of linguistics in the classroom and clarify some of the problems of traditional grammar. The three articles on literature cover Kenneth Burke's dramatistic elements, the theme-concept unit in literature, and a literature program for summer schools. The section on composition deals with the place of linguistics in composition, with revising themes, and with grading by records. Three articles cover teacher education and training, and the final four articles deal with curriculum development: reading in junior high schools, seminars for talented rural youth, research and development in the teaching of English, and ways of developing interdisciplinary seminars.
