A Study of Skills Development in English Elective Programs in Selected Public Secondary Schools in Massachusetts.
Devoe, Thelma Edmunds
The purpose of this study was to investigate the processes and procedures utilized in designing and maintaining the teaching of communication skills in English elective programs. A systematic case-study description was made of skills components in the elective English programs in four public secondary schools in Massachusetts. The informational data was of two kinds: the content of verbal interviews with school personnel and pupils, and collections of printed materials of various sorts. (The results of the study are presented in detail, and it is concluded that skills development should be viewed as an integral part of the elective English program which includes the use of all modes of communication, both modern and traditional.)
