Portland. English is required for four years. An attempt is
made to make the courses interesting as well as complete-
Teaching the students listening skills, occupational
vocabularies, and knowledge of library use were obiec-
tives ofthe English department,
In addition to standard grammar and literature courses,
students get experience in speech, journalism and film
making. Much stress is placed on teaching the basic skills
which enable the students to function on the iob or to sur-
vive in college.
English is a very important course and should be con-
sidered as an important part of the overall educational
process. All teachers try to make the classes interesting by
using a variety of methods.

Mr. Robert Veley was the head ot the German
Language department and the only teacher in the depart-
ment for the 1975-76 school year.
The German classes used many aides in learning this
language. Some of the aides were practice records for stu-
dent use at home, video tape machines, headphones and
tapes so that the student could hear the right way to pro-
nounce words and also so the instructor could hear each
studentarid help him.
Benson offered only first and second year German.
Students studied German for many reasons: to learn
another language, to enable them to travel in Europe with
more understanding, to use as a basis for future college
courses, and to earn a high school credit.
Mr. Veley was assisted this year by a student teacher,
Mr. Ron Senter, who arrived in the middle of the third
grading period ond stayed until until the end ofthe school
