RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT SEMINAR IN THE TEACHING OF ENGLISH HELD AT NEW YORK UNIVERSITY, FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 2, 1963.
ROSENBLATT, LOUISE M.
SPECIALISTS IN ENGLISH AND EXPERTS IN RESEARCH METHODS, TESTING, AND EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY CONSIDERED PROBLEMS OF DEVELOPING SOUND RESEARCH FOR INVESTIGATIONS IN THE TEACHING OF ENGLISH. THE SEMINAR WAS ALSO CONCERNED WITH THE PLACE OF RESEARCH IN THE CURRENT MOVEMENT OF INSTRUCTION IN ENGLISH IN SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES. FOURTEEN DOCUMENTS PRESENTED AT THE SEMINAR ARE TRANSMITTED. THE REPORT IS AN INDIVIDUAL INTERPRETATION OF THE SEMINAR, NOT A PRESENTATION OF FORMALLY-APPROVED GROUP CONCLUSIONS. IT DOES NOT REPRESENT A GENERAL POSITION SO MUCH AS A SNYTHESIS OF IDEAS AND ATTITUDES EXPRESSED. MAJOR TOPICS DISCUSSED INCLUDE--APPROACHES TO RESEARCH IN TEACHING, CONSIDERATIONS IN PLANNING RESEARCH, AND THE GENERAL AREAS OF BASIC AND APPLIED RESEARCH. THE TERM "BASIC RESEARCH" WAS APPLIED TO A WIDE RANGE OF QUESTIONS REQUIRING AN ANSWER BEFORE HYPOTHESES ABOUT ENGLISH TEACHING COULD BE FORMULATED. SUGGESTED BASIC RESEARCH IN COMPOSITION, READING, AND LITERATURE IS OUTLINED. APPLIED RESEARCH WAS DEFINED AS RESEARCH CONCERNED WITH EVALUATING ACTUAL TEACHING TECHNIQUES AND DIFFERENT CLASSROOM PROCEDURES. A LIST OF ABOUT 30 PROBLEMS IN APPLIED RESEARCH IS OFFERED.
