Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
To provide a framework for secondary English program planning, the first half of this book defines the rationale and nature of an English curriculum, outlines content in language, literature, composition, reading, and speaking and listening on five levels, and offers procedural suggestions for developing a local English program. The last half of the book provides practical guidelines for implementing an English program; chapters are devoted to teaching literature, reading skills, composition, speaking and listening, and the English-related areas of theatre arts, speech communication, and journalism. Two appendixes present sample units on time and personal identity that are organized with an explanatory overview, general objectives for the student, and lists of numerous outlined activities. (MAI)
