Secondary Journalistic English and Literature I and II Course of Study.
Meeks, Lynn Langer
Delineating the content that must be covered in the secondary schools of the State of Idaho, this guide presents a course of study in journalistic English and literature, an integrated course which incorporates literature, composition, and language applied to modern communication skills. Although educators sometimes use the terms interchangeably, the course of study in the guide is not an instructional or curriculum guide--it prescribes what is to be taught; defines the subject in terms of purpose, definition, student goals and objectives; and can be changed only by action of the State Board of Education. The guide begins by describing the philosophy and rationale for the course of study, as well as local applied options, the purpose, and the critical components of the course. It then lists the nine goals (including examine the historical background of communication; learn and apply the writing process; learn methods of journalistic research; and apply English and journalism skills by organizing, designing, and producing a publication) and the associated objectives of the introductory course (grades 9, 10, or 11) and the eight goals (including apply methods of journalistic research, apply logical and critical thinking skills, and learn to plan and organize a school publication and supervise staff development) and associated course objectives for the production-level course (grades 10, 11, or 12). Contains a 117-item bibliography of journalistic literature and a textbook evaluation guide. (RS)
