The entire study has been constructed in an attempt to effect a closer articulation between High School English and Freshman College English, thus, hoping to reduce failures in the Freshman English; we have therefore attempted I. to ascertain just what subject matter is taught in each year of the high school in English; (a) the titles of textbooks used in each year of the high school; (b) the number of students enrolled in the senior class. With this information one should be able to estimate what a student, coming from one of these schools , should know. II. We had all seniors in various high schools to take the Prairie View Test in English Essentials. III. On the basis of a thirty six (36) week school year, five (5) recitations per week, a syllabus for ninth grade English for the Prairie View Laboratory High school has been constructed, based upon state requirements, using the text: The Highway to English by Clarke and others, Book One. IV. A bibliography has been selected that will prove valuable, if used, to any English Instructor.
