Recordings are not a new educational "gadget" to high-school language arts teachers. For more than a score of years some teachers have been using a few recordings of literature with varying degrees of success. Today, the extensive range of recordings available, the professional quality of the performances, and the fidelity of the reproduction increase the probability of success for the teacher who is interested in using recordings to foster attitudes of appreciation and to develop skills of communication. This bulletin presents descriptions of ways teachers are now using commercial recordings in various units of instruction to develop understanding and enjoyment of poetry, drama, and fiction, and other literature to teach intelligent, critical listening; to encourage students to study language as a social process which leads to cooperation, approval, disagreement, or conflict; and to promote continuous developmental growth in oral and written communication skills needed by youth and adults in America today. The bibliography of records includes nearly 500 titles. Most of the records listed have been produced since the end of World War II. Except for the sections on International Selections, Historical Selections, and Religious Selections, recordings are grouped by type of literature: Poetry, Drama, Biography, and others. No appraisal of recordings is offered as it is believed that students may engage in a profitable learning exercise by making their own selections with the help of the teacher. (Contains 4 footnotes.)
