RESEARCH IN LANGUAGE ARTS.
PETTY, WALTER T.
VERY LITTLE IMPORTANT RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE IN THE FIELD OF LANGUAGE ARTS, AND THE RESEARCH INTEREST IN THAT FIELD ENDS WITH THE PUBLICATION OF RESEARCH REPORTS WHICH OFFER PRONOUNCEMENTS RATHER THAN RESEARCH EVIDENCE. THE PURPOSES OF RESEARCH OR HOW ITS FINDINGS COULD BE USED HAVE NOT BEEN CLARIFIED. THERE IS ALSO BLIND ACCEPTANCE OF WHAT AUTHORITIES SAY. SOME MAJOR PROBLEMS IN HANDWRITING, SPELLING, LISTENING, ORAL EXPRESSION, AND IN WRITTEN EXPRESSION NEED INVESTIGATION. MORE THOROUGH EXAMINATION OF PROPOSALS ADVANCED, OF THE FINDINGS OF LANGUAGE SCHOLARS, AND OF THE DIRECTION BEING TAKEN BY CURRICULUM CHANGE SHOULD BE MADE. THE HELP OF THE NATIONAL COUNCIL ON RESEARCH IN ENGLISH AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS IS NEEDED TO RELATE CURRENT TEACHING MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES TO THE BEST AVAILABLE RESEARCH EVIDENCE AND TO DISTRIBUTE LISTS OF SPECIFIC PROBLEMS TO AGENCIES INTERESTED IN FUNDING EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON RESEARCH IN ENGLISH (NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 17-18,1967). (NS)
