English and the 70's: Part IV: Approaches to English I. Appendix to Final Report.
Douglas, Wallace W.
A set of curriculum papers written mainly by teachers who attended workshops in continuing education is presented. This set is a collection of teaching materials, assignments, and exercises, accompanied in some cases by reports of use. The intent of these papers is to provoke significant curriculum change by changing teacher attitudes. Values of these essays are listed as follows: (1) They give examples of good teaching materials; (2) They show teachers moving on their own in the realm of theory; and (3) They illustrate evidence of the workings of curriculum change. This document contains 23 lessons in various aspects of English, illustrative of the improvement in exercises that can occur when ends are clearly understood and their relation to means clearly articulated. The emphasis is generally on teaching properties of style or form. (For related documents, see TE 002 930, TE 002 936 - 937, and TE 002 939.) (Author/CK)
