Since the fall of 1970, an elective English program has been available for senior high students in the Omaha Public Schools. Although all senior high schools have sampled the program called Special-Interest English, only four of the eight high schools have adopted it in total. Since its inception, the program has become increasingly sophisticated developing somewhat differently in each school. Technical High School, which adopted the elective program, has now expanded it into an individualized program so unique and complex that that school will not be included in this study.
