Decisions about the Teaching of English.
Simmons, John S.; And Others
Directed primarily at those who have not yet taught English and who aspire to do so, this book presents an approach for teaching English to adolescents of the 1970s and later that supports the practical, enduring aspects of traditional instruction but also uses innovative methods that are not excessive, trivial, or faddish. To assist teachers in making decisions about specific aspects of their tasks, the book focuses on six major topics: the total curriculum, imaginative materials, language as a commodity, the structuring of ideas for communication, the use of media in communication, and the place and role of the English teacher. An index is included. (JM)
