A Resource Bulletin for Teachers of English--Grade 10: The Worlds of Discourse.
Baltimore County Board of Education, Towson, MD.
This sequential curriculum guide for grade ten uses a sequence which encourages the teacher to begin with student experience and language and to progress to a variety of learning experiences which integrate all elements of the language arts and which permit students to discover their own generalizations and periodically evaluate their own progress. The steps in the procedure are: (1) propose a minimal situation which the students then develop and explore in a dramatic improvisation; (2) follow this with further exploration and development in class discussion; (3) use the ideas generated as the basis for student writing; (4) stimulate cross-commentary on and evaluation of the writing; and (5) provide for reading in the same mode of discourse. Three teaching approaches used include small group discussion, dramatic improvisation, and induction. Units cover free reading, drama (interacting), language and feelings, points of view, the language of advertising, fantasy, reportage, argumentation, visual literacy film communication, themes and variations, grammar, and the meaning in the poem.
