IMPROVING ENGLISH INSTRUCTION IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOL THROUGH TITLE III, NDEA.
HOUPT, GARY L.
THE MAJOR PROGRAMS AUTHORIZED BY TITLE III, NATIONAL DEFENSE EDUCATION ACT (NDEA), TO STRENGTHEN INSTRUCTION IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE (1) THE ACQUISITION OF LABORATORY AND OTHER SPECIAL MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT, AND (2) THE PROVISION OF STATE SUPERVISORY AND RELATED SERVICES TO IMPROVE THE TEACHING OF ENGLISH, READING, HISTORY, CIVICS, GEOGRAPHY, SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS, AND MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES. ACCORDINGLY, THE DELAWARE STATE DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION HAS PUBLISHED "STANDARDS FOR EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS IN ENGLISH," A GUIDE FOR USE BY LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN SELECTING AND PREPARING PROPOSALS FOR TITLE III PROJECTS. ELIGIBILITY OF MATERIALS IS DETERMINED PRIMARILY BY THEIR INTENDED USE AND DIRECT BEARING UPON PROGRAM STRENGTHENING AND IMPROVEMENT. WORKSHOPS AND OTHER IN-SERVICE TRAINING PROGRAMS WHICH PREPARE TEACHERS TO USE NEW EQUIPMENT AND MATERIALS AND WHICH FAMILIARIZE THEM WITH NEW TEACHING PROCEDURES MAY RECEIVE NDEA SUPPORT, PERMITTING THE UTILIZATION OF SERVICES OF RESEARCH CONSULTANTS, AUDIOVISUAL MEDIA SPECIALISTS, SCHOOL LIBRARY SUPERVISORS, AND STATE SUPERVISORS. RESEARCH AND DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS TO EVALUATE RESEARCH FINDINGS ARE ALSO ENCOURAGED UNDER TITLE III. REPORTS ON RESULTS OF NDEA PROVISIONS INDICATE IMPROVED CLASSROOM SITUATIONS, IMPROVED TEACHERS, AND IMPROVED CURRICULA. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "DELAWARE ENGLISH JOURNAL," VOL. 2, NO. 1, SPRING 1967. (RD)
