No matter how one communicates in the United States he uses some form of English, whether spoken or written. To im¬ prove communications, Rocky ' s Junior English classes have used new textbooks containing more modern and proper uses of English. In the classroom the use of the new overhead projectors and films aided the teachers in their presentations. There were three divisions in the Senior English course. 12-C was a special College English class equal to a Freshman Rhetoric class with 27 advanced students. 12-R was a college preparatory course, and 12-N was a regular English course. The students studied English background, creative writing, grammar and journalism. Sophomores studied five areas of world literature; the short story, non-fiction, the novel, poetry, the drama, and the legend. These units were supplemented with outside readings. Required reading were The Pearl, J. Caesar, and Mythology. MRS. MARIE GILLETTE, Senior English teacher, contemplates her recent board work. 34
