In this thesis I have attempted to compile some of the modern methods, techniques, and devices for teaching English in the high school.

I have noticed particularly here at Prairie View that in a majority of cases a higher standard of work might be perfected, if our students had a better background in the fundamentals of English. Those things upon which the success of our English courses and others, too, must be built.

The suggestions herein have been taken from copies of periodicals subscribed for by our library. Many of these techniques, methods, and devices are the results of experiments that have been tried. The articles are summarized for the hope of fulfilling the following objectives: 1. To summarize under one caption some of the latest and Most modern methods and devices as found in current periodicals. 2. To give to beginning teachers a summary of some helpful devices which will aid them in carrying out a successful program in their work in English. 3. To arouse initiative on the part of teachers to do better work. 4. To stimulate teachers to do further work toward developing other devices and techniques in the teaching of English.
