A Resource Bulletin for Teachers of English: Grade Seven.
Baltimore County Public Schools, Towson, MD.
The present guide for the junior high school was prepared by a teacher workshop for the average and above-average student in the "regular" English program. Some objectives of the program are: (1) To help pupils appreciate that language is the basis of all culture; (2) To provide opportunities in a natural setting for the practice of communication skills which will promote desirable human relationships and effective group participation; and (3) To teach pupils to listen attentively and analytically and to evaluate what they hear. The program introduces adolescents to literary, linguistic, and rhetorical traditions and forms; it also caters to students' interests, and uses, as much as possible, contemporary materials and ideas. The program encourages student involvement in all its aspects and emphasizes learning through all the senses so that learning is total rather than merely verbal. The program presents major units for each grade, 7-9. There are a variety of types of units in each grade, e.g., at least one unit that emphasizes a particular literary genre, one that is thematically organized, and another that emphasizes the continuity of a particular literary tradition or motif. The units contained in this document are specifically for grade 7. (For related document, see TE 002 782.) (CK)
