Thematic Units in Teaching English and the Humanities. Second Supplement.
Spann, Sylvia, Ed.; Culp, Mary Beth, Ed.
The seven units in this second supplement to "Thematic Units" focus on communication skills, offering English teachers contemporary plans for teaching writing, listening, persuasion, and reasoning. The units were selected for their humanistic approaches to student language learning, combining English instruction with topics in the humanities. Each unit contains comments from the teacher who developed the unit, an overview of the unit, general objectives, evaluation methods, daily lesson plans and activities, study guides, resource materials, and other appropriate suggestions and attachments. The topics of the units are the school system, logic, nostalgia (studying the popular culture of a past decade), futurism as a framework for composition instruction, advertising, politics, and law and justice.
