Explorations in the Teaching of Secondary English: A Source Book for Experimental Teaching.
Judy, Stephen N.
This book contains ideas and numerous practical examples for instructors interested in designing their own method for teaching secondary English. Each chapter focuses on a single issue or problem, practical or theoretical, which English teachers face in today's schools. An introductory essay on each topic surveys the dimensions of the problem and suggests some ways in which it can be approached. At the close of each chapter are activities to think about, talk over, and do. Discussed are such topics as language, experience, and the teaching of English; a history of the teaching of English; standards and structure; the process of composing; writing; personal engagement with literature; literature programs; the classroom environment; classroom drama; mass media and English; alternatives to the study of grammar; and evaluation and grading.
