The Teaching of English( Book )

12 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols were not the lone conspirators in the Oklahoma City bombing-the attack that killed nearly 170 people in a few short seconds. They were part of a greater scheme, one which involved Islamic terrorists and at least one provable link to Iraq. This book, written by the relentless reporter who first broke the story of the Mideast connection, is filled with new revelations about the case and explains in full detail the complete, and so far untold, story behind the failed investigation-why the FBI closed the door, what further evidence exists to prove the Iraqi connection, why it has been ignored, and what makes it more relevant now than ever. Told with a gripping narrative style and rock-solid investigative journalism and vetted by men such as former CIA director James Woolsey, Davis's piercing account is the first book to set the record straight about what really happened April 19, 1995

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 417 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)

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 67 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.
