English 591, 592, and 593--Advance Program: Images of Man.
Jefferson County Board of Education, Louisville, KY.
For those students who qualify, the Advance Program offers an opportunity to follow a stimulating curriculum designed for the academically talented. The purposes of the course outlined in this guide for twelfth grade English are to bring the previous three years' studies in Advance Program English to a meaningful culmination; to provide a challenging, practical, college-level course of study that includes the traditional twelfth grade experiences in English literature; to expand these experiences to include representative literature that offers a world view of the universality of human experience; and to prepare students adequately for advanced placement in college. The introductory unit on the history of the English language reinforces ninth and tenth grade linguistic studies and provides experiences designed to bring the students to a realization of the dynamic character of their language--from Beowulf and Chaucer to Eliot and Shaw. The units include exercises in expository writing in correlation with the literature studies so that the students can discover their basic deficiencies and strengthen their skills. (JM)
