English Language Arts in American High Schools. Bulletin, 1958, No. 13

This bulletin is the second in a seres of studies aimed at describing current developments in the secondary school curriculum as they are revealed in recent courses of study and teaching guides. It is the only analysis of the English curriculum in grades 7-12 which has been made by the Office in the past year. This survey includes the four major areas of the language arts: writing, speaking, listening, and reading literature. Besides acquainting teachers, supervisors, and administrators, the general content and nature of language arts guides and courses of study, this bulletin may serve as a source of information for curriculum leaders and committees wishing to consider various approaches to producing or revising courses of study. It tells how language arts curriculum committees are organized how they carry on their work, and the guidelines they follow. It also describes ways in which committees determine scope and sequence for learning activities, how they prepare resource units and how they provide for individual differences. Finally, it points out the major changes which have occurred in the high school language arts curriculum since Dora V. Smith's study, "Instruction in English in 1932". (Contains 12 tables and 99 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
