AN EVALUATION OF THE 1964 SUMMER INSTITUTES ON TEACHING ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE.
HARRIS, DAVID P.
THE NDEA ENGLISH INSTITUTES HELD IN PUERTO RICO AND AT THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT LOS ANGELES IN 1964 WERE ANALYZED BY USING A FOLLOWUP QUESTIONNAIRE SENT TO ALL INSTITUTE PARTICIPANTS. THE PURPOSES OF THE FOLLOWUP QUESTIONNAIRE WERE TO DETERMINE THE EXTENT TO WHICH (1) THE PARTICIPANTS HAD BEEN ABLE TO USE THE PRINCIPLES AND TECHNIQUES TAUGHT IN THE INSTITUTE PROGRAMS AND (2) THE PARTICIPANTS' EARLY JUDGMENTS ABOUT THE INSTITUTES HAD CHANGED AS A RESULT OF THEIR SUBSEQUENT EXPERIENCE IN THE CLASSROOM. GENERALLY, JUDGMENTS ABOUT THE INSTITUTE DID NOT CHANGE IN THAT PARTICIPANTS FELT THAT IT WAS WORTHWHILE. OVER ONE-HALF OF THE PARTICIPANTS HAD ALREADY FOUND OPPORTUNITIES TO SHARE THEIR NEW KNOWLEDGE WITH OTHERS THROUGH SPEECHES OR CONSULTATION. RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FUTURE INSTITUTES WERE DEVELOPED FROM REPORTS OF EVALUATORS, CONSULTANTS, AND PARTICIPANTS. (LP)
