Teaching English in the Middle Years.
Tucker, Bernard
This book attempts to present a consensus about the teaching of English in junior high and middle schools (students aged 8-13). The book is concerned with presenting a theoretical framework and an indication of where to begin and how to proceed with the teaching of English. Chapters deal with various aspects of English, including poetry, fiction, creative writing, drama, listening, and talking. Each chapter begins with a discussion of why these various aspects should be taught, how they can be introduced, what the teacher might hope to achieve, and suggestions for the type of work which will meet the different needs of the child at each stage of the middle years. A final chapter, entitled "Organization and Resources," deals with overall problems in coordinating the various activities, integrating English with other aspects of the curriculum, planning the year's work, and using audiovisual materials. The four appendixes list books for the teacher's reference. (TS)
