Composition Focus for Nine-Week Elective Courses in English, Grades 9-12 (In-Service Workshop, June 1973).
Henrico County School System, Highland Springs, VA.
Intended as an aid to teachers of composition, this course guide focuses on the minimum essentials of writing included in elective courses at two general grade levels: 9-10 and 11-12. Emphasizing quality in composition rather than quantity, the guide provides a scheme of sequential composition experiences and suggests individualized instruction, the keeping of a journal by students, and the use of student writing samples for diagnostic and evaluative purposes. The guide includes: lists of objectives for language and composition and of minimum essentials for elective courses; statements about writing; lists of nine common student theme faults, frequently misspelled words, and suggested activities; and a bibliography.
