A Potpourri of Activities--For Use in Heterogeneously Grouped Secondary School English Classes.
Schullstrom, Faith Z.
This pamphlet includes a variety of suggestions and activities to stimulate language and thereby increase students' control over their environment and their lives. Although many of these activities can be used with elementary students, the emphasis in this collection is on language stimulation among secondary school children. The first section contains activities for teaching metaphors, fables, language, symbols, time periods, categories, the use of specific details and imagery, and story telling. The second section deals with activities for teaching surrealistic poetry, abbreviations, and book and movie criticism. The third section contains activities to help students develop interpersonal skills. The fourth section contains interaction activities. The fifth section contains activities designed to help students recognize the ways that expectations shape their lives and to examine the derivation of their sex role expectations. (TS)
