Teaching English in the Secondary School.
Parker, Robert P., Jr.; Daly, Maxine E.
An abundance of specific material useful to teachers of English in all types of high schools is presented in this book. Topics such as drama, media, linguistics, literature, and composition are discussed in the following chapters: (1) "Young People and Their Environment," (2) "The Nature of English: Toward a Developmental View," (3) "Making Teaching More Student-Centered," (4) "Planning for English Work," (5) "Working with Language," (6) "Film in the English Classroom," and (7) "Staying Alive in the Classroom." Suggestions for classroom activities, sample lesson plans, and bibliographies are provided with most of the chapters. The content of the book is applicable to all students though much discussion is given to the "intellectually impoverished and the academically unmotivated." (HOD)
