Modular Curriculum: English/Social Studies. Anatomy of a Western: An Exercise in Fact and Fiction and Teacher's Guide.
This high school English IV, 8-week correspondence course analyzes the "West," attempting to separate facts from fiction. Through readings in required texts, articles appended in the syllabus, art prints, and a personal reminescence on tape, the student is acquainted with the theory, reality, and fiction of the West. A bibliography augments the necessary readings. Each week's readings are followed-up by written assignments including analysis of TV westerns during one week. A final essay exam concludes the course. A teacher's guide, in a separate booklet, outlines points that a teacher might expect the student to cover in his written assignments. (JH)
