The purpose of the proposed language program for the Timpson High School freshman class are as follows: 1. To help the student meet as effectively as possible, circumstances involving the use of language. 2. To prepare the student for life's situations by giving him what he needs and permitting him to designate his needs through his everyday speech and writing. 3. To stimulate the pupil's interest in clear thinking in oral and written language. 4. To encourage the pupil to have respect for the language he uses, to have special aims in literary study, and in the study of composition.

Weaknesses in oral and written language can be overcome through learning what they are and then carefully making plans to do more effective teaching that keeps constantly in view the recognized aims of education.

Limited knowledge of basic fundamentals of oral and written language restricts effective thought expression. Incorrect grammar, capitalization, punctuation, and sentence sense show a lack of comprehension of language usage. The use of material within the interest, ability, and experience of the pupil tends to improve his thinking.
