Towards a New English: A Handbook for Teachers of Secondary School English in the 1970s.
Ashworth, Arthur, Ed.; Watson, Ken, Ed.
This book examines the changes that have occurred in the teaching of English in recent years, especially in England and Australia, and attempts to arrive at a new conception of what it means to teach English. Divided into seven parts, this book explores English as a language activity; defines English in terms of what it is and what it is not; discusses curriculum changes for the seventies; examines teaching practices in reading, writing, poetry, drama, and fiction courses; presents a lengthy discussion on the introduction of the mass media into the English class; rehashes the ever present problem of evaluating and assessing student performance; and concludes with five descriptions of English programs that are meeting the demands of secondary students.
