English for Young School Leavers.
Teaching English--CITE Newsletter, v5 n3 p4-17 May 1972
Teachers wanting to translate principles into classroom practice are the intended audience for these sample lessons from an English program for young school leavers, i.e., students 11-16 years old. Divided into three approaches (single units, short themes, and longer themes), these samples are drawn from portfolios assembled in workshops held in Dundee, Ross, Cromarty, Banffshire, Stornoway, Dumfriesshire, Kirkcudbrightshire, Wigtownshire, and Edinburgh. Each individual unit is outlined according to input element, aims of a unit, suggested lines of development, treatment, suggested points for discussion, assignments, and notes to the teacher. Some of the themes dealt with in the 14 samples include loneliness, blind dates, social prejudice, emotion and violence, irresponsibility and waste, a woman's place, etc. The three approaches offered do not cover all the work a full curriculum would need to encompass, but the basic principles may still apply.
