BO-CEC English Resource Guide; Grades 7-9.
Colorado State Univ., Ft. Collins. Dept. of Vocational Education.
The 20 resource English units which comprise the guide for grades seven-nine are designed to supplement, rather than replace, regular instructional materials and are intended for use as enrichment materials to use as reinforcement exercises after regular English units have been taught. The purpose of the guide is to give students a chance to explore various business and office occupations while gaining insight into how and why a knowledge of English is important in everyday work life. The units may be adapted to fit special objectives. The first 12 units deal with grammar and the mechanics of writing, letter writing, the preparing outgoing mail; in all but one, the major activity is a job simulation requiring students to apply their knowledge of the English topic with which the unit deals. Four oral language units each contain two major activities and, as in the first 12, each unit contains a teacher's key, a background information sheet on the occupation, optional activities suggestions, and student worksheets. The remaining four units contain articles from newspapers or periodicals and related discussion questions which cover both literary concepts and career information. (Author/AJ)
