Title: New: Developing a High School Linguistics Course
Submitter: Suzi Loosen
Description: Hello,

I am a high school English teacher working on my M.A. in Linguistics. I am
currently designing an elective Introduction to Linguistics course to be
taught at the 11th and 12th grade level. I am looking to find out if there
are any other courses being taught in American high schools that focus
primarily on Linguistics. I am also looking for additional resources to
help make Linguistics relevant to high school students.

I have chosen David Crystal's ''Cambridge Encyclopedia of Language'' as the
text for the course and am currently writing lesson plans for a
semester-long course.

I teach at Milwaukee School of Languages, a 6th-12th grade language
immersion school, and I am hoping to make this course a reality within the
next two years.

Any comments on programs that are already in place or advice on how to
proceed would be appreciated.

Thank you,
