Teaching the History of the English Language in the Secondary Classroom.
Milosh, Joseph E., Jr.
A monograph to encourage the teaching of the English language is presented. This work is directed primarily to the high school English teacher. It contains six chapters. Chapter One, The Subject and the high school teacher of English, describes, among other things, three ways to get at the inclusiveness of the English language. Chapter Two, Bringing the History of English into the Classroom, concerns itself with answering the question of why the teacher should concern himself with the transfer of his knowledge of the history of English into the classroom. Chapter Three, Content and Technique for the Classroom, Content and Technique for the Classroom, defines language briefly as a system of arbitrary vocal symbols which men communicate with. Chapter Four, Structuring a Unit on the History of English, emphasizes that a teacher should create his own unit. Chapter Five, The History of the English Language and Literature, discusses the relationship between language and literature. Chapter Six, For the Teacher and the Future, emphasizes that the teacher should constantly be building a body of language material. (Author/CK)
