TEACHER TRAINING AND THE CLASSICS.
REXINE, JOHN E.
WITH THE STUDY OF MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES FAR OUTSTRIPPING THE STUDY OF LATIN, IT BEHOOVES LATIN TEACHERS TO REVITALIZE THEIR TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS. MORE SPECIFICALLY, NEW PROGRAMS SHOULD REFLECT THE IDEAS AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF JAMES B. CONANT, THE PLANS OF FIVE EXPLORATORY PROGRAMS IN TEACHER PREPARATION INITIATED BY THE N.Y. STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT, AND THE GUIDELINES IN TEACHER COMPETENCIES ESTABLISHED BY THE MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA. THE FIRST AIRLIE HOUSE CONFERENCE ON THE CLASSICS, IN APRIL 1965, TOOK A HELPFUL STEP IN THIS DIRECTION BY RECOMMENDING THAT A COMMITTEE OF CLASSICISTS SET UP CERTIFICATION STANDARDS FOR LATIN TEACHERS COVERING PROFICIENCY IN THE LANGUAGE, KNOWLEDGE OF ROMAN HISTORY AND CIVILIZATION, PROFICIENCY IN SUCH RELATED FIELDS AS ART AND ARCHAEOLOGY OR GREEK, AND THOROUGH GROUNDING IN TEACHING METHODS, MATERIALS, AND TECHNIQUES. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "CLASSICAL WORLD," VOLUME 59, NUMBER 8, APRIL 1966. (GJ)
