Ideas for Teaching English in the Junior High and Middle School. New Edition.
Carter, Candy, Ed.; Rashkis, Zora, Ed.
The nearly two hundred activities in this teaching guide for language arts in the junior high and middle school are arranged in five sections: studying language, communicating orally, reading and reading literature, writing, and listening and viewing. Each section opens with a list of activities, a brief introductory statement, and suggested reading. Sections are subdivided to help teachers locate activities related to particular curriculum units or areas of special interest. All activities were adapted to fit a unified format: purpose, preparation, and presentation. Approximately half of the activities contain material that should be distributed to students and these material sheets are printed separately for ease of reproduction and are presented in a special section. The appendix contains articles on parental involvement in the language arts program and on a two-year program in junior high school writing. (MKM)
