The Dynamics of English Instruction: Grades 7-12.
Hillocks, George; And Others
This curriculum guide to English instruction in grades seven through twelve moves from discussions of theory to discussions of practice. Section I deals with various aspects of planning and classroom operation from an examination of English as a subject of study to basic rationales for deciding what to teach and methods for evaluating instruction. Sections II, III, and IV, on teaching literature, language, and composition, examine traditions in each area and philosophical and theoretical ideas underlying specific suggestions about instruction. Several fully developed instructional units, which are intended as models for the creation of other units, are also included. Most of these units suggest a specific grade level, but some may be used at any one of several grade levels. The book may be approached through either the specific instructional materials or the theoretical chapters, but the writers suggest that the two sections eventually be related to one another. An index is included. (Author/DI)
