The Teaching of High School English. 4th Edition.
Hook, J. N.
Intended to inform both the new and the experienced English teacher about the present state of knowledge in the field, this textbook is also addressed to students preparing to teach English language and literature in junior and senior high schools. The book stresses application rather than theory, presenting specific classroom procedures drawn both from the author's own teaching experience, the experience of other teachers, and research. The chapters include discussions of the changing world of the English teacher; what makes a good English teacher; how to plan instructional units; the improvement of reading; the teaching of literature, fiction, poetry, non-fiction, composition, grammar, punctuation, spelling, vocabulary, creative listening, speech, film; and teacher development.
