Thematic Units in Teaching English and the Humanities. First Supplement.
Spann, Sylvia, Ed.; Culp, Mary Beth, Ed.
The units in this first supplement to "Thematic Units in Teaching English and the Humanities" have been selected, as were those in the original publication, because they involve students actively in reading, writing, listening, and speaking for a purpose--that purpose being to explore and communicate with others on issues of vital interest. The five units deal with the new journalism and the student voice, speculation about life on other planets, male/female roles in literature and the media, the "exodus" theme in black American literature, and divorce. For each unit, the contributors provide daily lesson plans and list objectives, evaluation measures, books and other materials, and suggested activities. (GW)
