Reading and writing in high schools : a whole-language approach by Eric Hobson( Book )

5 editions published between 1990 and 1994 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arguing that students should be encouraged frequently to listen, to speak, to read, and to write in all areas of the curriculum and to begin asking the questions that reveal the dependence that exists between various bodies of knowledge, this book is based on the whole-language theory. The book is designed not only to help students learn such specifics as grammar, usage, and mechanics in real and natural ways, but also to provide teachers with opportunities to make linkages with the community and to involve parents and other citizens in school activities. Chapters 1 and 2 discuss how people learn and what the whole-language approach is. Chapter 3 presents the skills of decoding (listening and reading); chapter 4 considers the skills of encoding (speaking and writing). The last chapter offers final comments about communication skills. (A 33-item annotated bibliography is attached.) (Keh)
The beginning teacher : a practical guide to problem solving by Robert J Krajewski( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book for beginning teachers is developed around six key problem areas: transition from student to teacher; professionalism; relationships (with students, parents, other teachers, principals, supervisors, school staff, and visiting consultants); lesson plans; discipline; and evaluation. A theoretical base is first established for each area and then followed by appropriate case studies. The case studies are followed by questions for thought and discussion as well as by suggested projects. In this way, teachers may work through problems and arrive at their own solutions. (Authors/JD)

Education in the 80's--English by R. Baird Shuman( Book )

4 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this collection are designed to provide an overview of the most pressing issues and ideas with which English teachers contend today and will contend in the near future. The contributors, 22 English teachers and educators, have attempted to view change in a sufficiently broad perspective to enable them to make responsible predictions about the 1980s, taking into account the social and economic variables that will necessarily affect the United States during this time. Titles of the essays reflect concerns for the following topics: (1) writing and the English curriculum; (2) literature study in the 1980s; (3) language and the English curriculum; (4) holonomic knowing (a very generalized model of holistic learning); (5) oral English and the literacy imperative; (6) reading and the teaching of English; (7) the basics in the 1980s; (8) English in the elementary and middle schools; (9) the training of English teachers in the 1980s; (10) the media, media literacy, and the English curriculum; (11) computer-assisted English instruction; (12) English as a second language in the 1980s; (13) English and vocational education; (14) dealing with sexual stereotypes; (15) English for minority groups, for the gifted and talented, and for the handicapped; and (16) needed research in the teaching of English.

Creative approaches to the teaching of English: secondary by R. Baird Shuman( Book )

3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written for the harried English teacher whose aim is creative and stimulating teaching, this book's chapters attempt to provide inspiration for instruction in six specific areas. Robert E. Probst urges the student's enjoyment of literature as a special, thought-provoking experience and suggests that a model of cooperation prevail over a competitive model; Charles Duke approaches drama as a literary genre and as a creative classroom experience which can expand into a school project; Robert Reising outlines a student discovery method for learning grammar; Jan Guffin explores both expository and creative writing, emphasizing the need for fluency; Bertrand F. Richards, denying any creative approaches to teaching spelling, shows how spelling may best be learned and understood; and R. Baird Shuman recommends methods for helping students with reading problems. References are included for each chapter, and an index concludes the book. (Jm)
