ttlllllxxxgtiiggsx 12.1.11 Q' WSJ . Q4l'72+3N'4 Q E ELISH "Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and digested." English is like a mighty oak tree. The trunk and her bare branches represent the native language forms, for they give the language its simplicity, directness, and force. The leaves and blossoms rep- resent the foreign element, which gives grace, va- riety, and ornament to the speech. The excellent blending of native and foreign elements give the English language its great possibilities for richness and power. Twelve centuries of literature bequeath to modern times "the best that has been said and done." The English department invariably seeks new ideas, new methods, new insights for presenting selections in literary tradition. The basis for the English language and its funda- mentals are presented to the student in the seventh grade. The emphasis is on simple grammar , . . grammar for sentence building, for correct usage, and for punctuation. Mrs, Davis tells Buddy Keliihololmai, "This verb should have been plural." Francis Bacon Eighth grade English begins with a review of seventh grade topics. More advanced parts of the English language and the essentials of composition are presented to the student during the year. Here he begins his literary climb. ln the ninth grade the student continues his study of grammar, paralleled by a course in modern, liv- ing authors. A program is established at this grade level which develops the many separate skills in reading growth. English I also contains a course on the outlook of teenagers towards the world of today. ln English ll, the emphasis in literature is on Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and George Elliot's Silas Marner. The Sophomore learns to "read be- tween the lines" . . . understand the author's tone and purpose, and appreciate the use of his imagina- tion. He is also taught the mechanics of advanced grammar. Mrs. Corson illustrates the importance of character. imvonnmcs OF AND PERSONALITY nine were deiicient in personal traits -4 .Z

Research work and reporting on a wide variety of topics are stressed in the English Ill course. By improving his punctuation and spelling, and learn- ing new meaning ot words, the student builds his vocabulary. The study of such American authors as Longfellow and Poe is also presented to the Juniors. In Senior English the student reaches the lost phase in his literary development in high school. By now he has a broad appreciation of literature. As he looks back, he remembers travels into un- known lands, ventures into fantasy, and even looks into the imagined future. Aside from studying Eng- Iish literature in this course, he prepares themes, summaries, and outlines, which condition him for college and his future career.
