A SURVEY OF LINGUISTIC UNITS IN THE HIGH SCHOOLS.
LEVIN, MIRIAM K.
TO SURVEY THE TEACHING OF LINGUISTICS IN SECONDARY SCHOOLS, THE EDUCATIONAL TESTING SERVICE (ETS) ASKED 650 ENGLISH TEACHERS TO COMPLETE QUESTIONNAIRES DESIGNED TO ELICIT INFORMATION ABOUT THE KIND AND EXTENT OF THEIR LINGUISTICS TRAINING, THE NATURE AND SIZE OF THE POPULATIONS STUDYING LINGUSTICS IN THEIR CLASSES, AND THE VOCABULARY AND CONTENT OF THEIR UNITS IN LINGUISTICS. ON THE BASIS OF THE FIRST 418 COMPLETED QUESTIONNAIRES PROCESSED, THREE CONCLUSIONS WERE REACHED. (1) A STRONG TREND TOWARD THE TEACHING OF LINGUISTICS EXISTS. (2) A STEADILY INCREASING TEACHER POPULATION IS BEING TRAINED IN THE NEW GRAMMAR. (3) THE TYPICAL 25-YEAR LAG BETWEEN RESEARCH FINDINGS AND CLASSROOM USE IS DEMONSTRABLY DECREASING IN THE CASE OF LINGUISTICS. (A COPY OF THE QUESTIONNAIRE, SHOWING RESPONSES, IS INCLUDED.) (MM)
