Readings for Teaching English in Secondary Schools.
Hipple, Theodore W.
This book of essays addressed primarily to high school English teachers, includes articles about both theories and practices of teaching English. Section one has general articles about teaching English, dealing with (1) such questions as "What is English?"; (2) specific problem areas such as accountability, behavioral objectives, and ability grouping; and (3) practical selections cutting across the component parts of English. Section two is on literature teaching--its goals, directions, methods, and relevance to students. Media study is the focus of section three, and section four discusses both the theoretical and practical aspects of composition, including students' evaluation of their own writing. Language is the subject of section five, which includes articles about the new grammars, semantics, and the problems raised by students using nonstandard English. Section six explores oral work and how it can be integrated into the English program. The editor has chosen articles from 25 different journals, quite a number of which, he determined from a survey, had "a distressingly small readership." (Author/DI)
