English Department Undertakes
Experiment With High Schools
Named B Gram
Course Work Evaluated
By University Men
By WILLIAM SPALLER
A "cooperative experiment" to pro-
mote better correlation in the teach-
ing of English in high school and
college has been undertaken this year
by the English department of the
The work consists in commenting
on and evaluating papers of high
school students representative of the
written work done in the last two
years in the preparatory English
course. The work this year has been
restricted to the teaching of written
composition and was joined in by more
than 60 high schools both within and
without the state.
The program has been under the
direction of the Michigan Commit-
tee on the Articulation of High School
and College English, headed by Pro-
fessors Clarence D. Thorpe, Erich A.
Walter and Earl Leslie Griggs of the
English department. Other members
of the committee include teachers in
Michigan public schools and Profes-
sors Roy W. Cowden, E. S. Everett
and N. E. Nelson, and Dr. Arno L.
Bader, Bert E. Boothe, Dr. J. L. Davis,
Dr. Theodore Hornberger, G. D. Helm,
William P. Knode, A. K. Stevens and
C. F. Wells of the English depart-
The high schools invited to par-
ticipate in the work include large
schools both in Michigan and out-
side the state who send relatively
large numbers of students to Ann Ar-
bor, and medium-sized or small Mich-
igan schools in sufficient number to
give a cross section of the problem.
More than 600 papers were exam-
ined by members of the committee
last semester and individual com-
mients written to analyze each paper
both in terms of its thought value
and in terms of its mechanical pro-
ficiency. Letters. were also written

At 8 a.m. Holy Communion will be
celebrated at St. Andrew's Episcopal
Church, and at 11 a.m. the morning
prayer with sermon by the Rev. Hen-
ry Lewis will be held. The student
group will meet 'at 6:30 p.m. at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. T. S. Peirsol
with Prof. Howard McClusky of the
School of Education speaking. Those
who do not know the way to the
Peirsol home will be picked up at
6:30 p.m. at Harris Hall.
At 10:30 a.m., the morning service
of the Trinity Lutheran Church will
be held with the Rev. H. O. Yoder
preaching on the subject "Why Cate-
chize?" The Lutheran Student club
will hold its annual senior banquet
at 6 p.m. May 24 in the Parish Hall
of the Zion Lutheran Church.
A Divine service in German is at
9:30 a.m. at St. Paul's Lutheran, and

to each school commenting on each
set of papers as a whole and analyz-
ing the types of composition, teaching
aims and methods and standards.
The program has also included a
limited number of visits to the high
schools, which is regarded as a very
important part of the work.
After papers have been criticized
and appraised they are returned to
the high school which compares, an-
alyzes, and discusses the ratings. It
is believed that the consultant's rat-
ings and comments will have greater
significance for the teaching of high
school English through this method.
Various ways of gathering informa-
tion in the cooperative experiment
have been followed by the committee.
They include courses of study, the
description of particular assignments,
and further ideas and opinions re-
garding a variety of problems in the
"We feel," it was stated by Mr.
Boothe, "that the University is
unique in a position to advance the
teaching of English in Dichigan by
developing this body of practical in-
formation and making it readily ac-
cessible to the schools."
Several reasons why the work has
been so valuable were outlined by Mr.
Boothe. They are, that it has aired
the whole problem of the teaching of
English composition with the result
that minor changes in certain high
school curricula have already oc-
curred, that it has given the high
schools a better understanding of
university aims, requirements, and
standards, and that it has brought
the high schools and the university
closer together and has promoted a
feeling of common interests and aims.
Many enthusiastic letters of com-
mendation of the experiment have
been received from high school prin-
cipals. Full-hearted cooperation has
been promised mith the hope that
the program will continue.
A pamphlet "Preparation for Col-
lege English" has been issued by the
committtee. The bulletin was pub-
lished for the purpose of presenting
"in as clear and concrete a form as
possible what is expected of an enter-
ing freshman as the University of
