The English Teacher's Handbook: Ideas and Resources for Teaching English.
Judy, Stephen N.; Judy, Susan J.
This handbook for high school English teachers includes sections on curriculum planning and course design, ideas for teaching English, and resources for teaching English. The topics in curriculum planning include course planning and design, individualizing, teacher-constructed materials, grading alternatives, aims and priorities, and accountability. Ideas for teaching include practical suggestions divided under the following subheadings: literature and reading, teaching composition, language study, and multimedia English. Among the many suggestions are the following: invite outside speakers, create a facsimile newspaper, compare the handling of a novel by other media, individualize reading assignments, read a novel aloud over a period of a few weeks, use music and movement while reading, use puppets, and encourage students to write to pen pals. The final section of the book provides names and addresses of magazines and journals, professional organizations, publishers of professional and instructional materials, government resources, contests, and free resources that might be of interest to English teachers.
