FISHER, JOHN HURT
THE MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA (MLA) CALLED A MEETING OF THE CURRICULUM STUDY AND DEMONSTRATION CENTER DIRECTORS TO SHARE INFORMATION ON THE CENTERS' PROGRESS AND PLAN WAYS OF SHARING CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT INFORMATION WITH THE PROFESSION-AT-LARGE, AND TO PLAN THE OPERATION AND SCHEDULE FOR THE 1966 ENGLISH INSTITUTE MATERIALS CENTER (EIMC). CONFEREES FAVORED THE CONTINUATION OF SUPPLYING STUDY AND DEMONSTRATION CENTER MATERIALS TO NATIONAL DEFENSE EDUCATION ACT (NDEA) SUMMER INSTITUTES, BUT AGREED TO LIMIT THE CONTRIBUTION OF ANY ONE CENTER AND THE NUMBER OF PAGES TO ANY ONE INSTITUTE PARTICIPANT. AFTER TWELVE CENTERS OFFERED TO CONTRIBUTE EXPERIMENTAL CURRICULUM MATERIALS TO EIMC IN 1966, A CALENDAR FOR EIMC OPERATIONS WAS ADOPTED. THE MLA AND THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH ARE ENCOURAGED TO EXPLORE THE FEASIBILITY OF A COMPREHENSIVE RE-EXAMINATION OF CONSIDERATIONS INVOLVED IN DEVELOPING THE ENGLISH CURRICULUM FOR SCHOOLS AND TO COLLECT ALL RELEVANT BIBLIOGRAPHY. AN ARTICLE BASED UPON THE CENTER DIRECTORS' PROGRESS REPORTS, "NEW MATERIALS FOR THE TEACHING OF ENGLISH--THE ENGLISH PROGRAM OF THE USOE," WAS DISTRIBUTED THROUGH EIMC TO ALL 1966 NDEA SUMMER INSTITUTE PARTICIPANTS.
