THE WORKLOAD OF THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHER.
Illinois Association of Teachers of English, Urbana.; National Council of Teachers of English, Champaign, IL.
THE NCTE COMMITTEE ON WORKLOAD OF THE ELEMENTARY TEACHER BELIEVES THAT EFFECTIVE INSTRUCTION IN ENGLISH DEPENDS UPON THE EFFORTS OF THE ELEMENTARY TEACHER, BUT THAT THESE EFFORTS ARE OFTEN VITIATED BY CONDITIONS BEYOND THE TEACHER'S IMMEDIATE CONTROL. PRIMARY AMONG THESE CONDITIONS ARE CLASS SIZE, AVAILABILITY OF PLANNING TIME, NONINSTRUCTIONAL RESPONSIBILITIES, ACCESS TO INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, AND OPPORTUNITY FOR CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL GROWTH. THEREFORE, IN THE INTEREST OF BETTER TEACHING OF ENGLISH IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH RECOMMENDS A RATIO OF 25 PUPILS PER TEACHER, PROVISIONS FOR DAILY PLANNING TIME, CLERKS TO AID TEACHERS, A LIBRARY AND AN INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS CENTER, AND THE CONSIDERATION OF INSERVICE TRAINING AS PART OF THE TEACHER'S WORKLOAD. (THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE "ILLINOIS ENGLISH BULLETIN," FEBRUARY 1968.) (DL)
