High school English instruction today : the national study of high school English programs by James R Squire( Book )

7 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book--based on Cooperative Research Project No. 1994 (see ed 010 163)--reports the results of a 5-year study which examined outstanding English programs in 158 primarily metropolitan high schools in 45 states, and identified aspects of these programs which might be emulated or improved. Questionnaires were analyzed on data processing machines, interviews were subjected to content analysis, and specialists in English observed classroom procedures. Shared characteristics of these schools were found to be (1) effective and intelligent administrators, (2) well-prepared English teachers who are professionally interested in both the subject and the students, (3) adequate instructional materials, (4) reasonable teaching conditions, (5) locally-prepared curriculum guides, (6) a disturbing lack of sequence and structure in programs, especially composition and language, (7) an emphasis on literature, providing for close reading of individual texts supported by supplementary individual reading, (8) inadequate attention to reading, speech, and examinations, and (9) lack of radical educational experimentation. Recommendations for improved English instruction are based on these findings. (This document previously announced as ed 023 667.) (js)

The responses of adolescents while reading four short stories by James R Squire( Book )

9 editions published in 1964 in English and Undetermined and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A method of studying the responses of adolescents to literature was devised and utilized in analyzing the reactions of 52 ninth- and 10th-grade students to four short stories. Each story was divided into six sections and the students' verbal responses were recorded after reading each section. The resulting data indicated that, of the seven response categories, students gave more interpretational reactions than summaries or responses involving literary judgment, self-involvement, personal associations, or prescriptive judgments. Although individual interpretations were generally unrelated to intelligence or reading ability and response patterns were highly individualized, a correspondence was noted between socioeconomic status and response patterns, and a strong positive relationship was found between responses of literary judgment and those of self-involvement. Six sources of difficulty in literary interpretation were identified: failure to grasp the meaning, irrelevant associations, reliance on stock responses, "happiness binding," critical predispositions, and a search for certainty. The information and techniques of this project can be applied to further research and to methods of teaching to correct revealed weaknesses. (The stories selected were "All the Years of Her Life" by Morley Callaghan, "Prelude" by Lucile Vaughan Payne, "Reverdy" by Jessamyn West, and "The Man in the Shadow" by Richard Washburn Child.) (Lh)

A study of English programs in selected high schools which consistently educate outstanding students in English by James R Squire( Book )

4 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By identifying and studying secondary english programs which were reported to be outstanding, the investigators sought to identify characteristics of superior programs which might be emulated in other schools. To guide staff members in planning, 12 hypotheses were formulated. The method used was a series of case studies of individual english programs. Student groups were matched, instruments created for measurement, and observers selected and prepared. The findings pertaining to the 12 hypotheses provided only a partial summary of the overall results. Other findings indicated that many of the programs evaluated were far weaker than they should be.
