This book is intended for use with students who can profit from instruction in vigorous and colorful writing. Emphasis is placed upon showing the student that his own experience is richer than he may suppose and upon helping him to draw from it. The first section of the book considers the general principles of subject, theme, observation, sensory words, description, and imagery. Four following sections treat the writing of fiction (short story and short play), the writing of poetry, the writing of facts (themes, articles, letters, journalistic accounts, biographies, and autobiographies), and the writer's craft. Each section contains many sample passages and exercises to illustrate and exemplify the principles and practices advocated in the text. (This book was published by D.C. heath and company, boston.)

Representative performance objectives for teaching high school English; a guide for teaching, evaluating, and curriculum planning by J. N Hook( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook, which lists and discusses representative performance objectives for secondary school English, is intended for use by high school teachers in planning units and lessons, for consideration by departments revising or rewriting an existing curriculum, and for discussion by preservice teachers in college methods classes and by groups of inservice teachers. The objectives are intended for grades nine through twelve, though some of the simpler ones may be used in grades seven and eight. The objectives were gathered in a two-year project undertaken in 1969-1971 by the University of Illinois at Urbana, Indiana University, and Purdue University under a research grant for the United States Office of Education. The authors define performance objectives as desirable outcomes of educational interaction phrased in terms of what learners should be able to do as a result of the interaction. Separate chapters are devoted to describing performance objectives in the areas of (1) sending and receiving non-verbal messages, (2) speaking and listening, (3) language, (4) reading and responding to literature, (5) writing, and (6) exploring the mass media. (This document is the Appendix to ed 057 028, which was the final report of the project.) (Author/DI)
