Minnesota State Dept. of Education, St. Paul. Div. of Instruction.
The major focus of this resource book is on people and the problems they have in relating to one another for mutual growth and development in a rapidly changing society. The goals and objectives of the guide, especially those related to the use and misuse of language in human affairs, have been validated by research as effective for the improvement of writing, critical thinking anc critical reading, and creativity, and for the reduction of prejudice. The contents consist of a section concerning perspectives on language and communication, with discussion and outlines of the subjects of language and communication, writing and communication, and language and literature; a section containing language study concepts and objectives, with sample lessons on the objectives, on speech dialects, and on general semantics; and 11 appendixes which contain material related to the various subjects of this guide.
