PROFESSIONAL CAREER OF THE COLLEGE ENGLISH TEACHER, PRESENT PRACTICES AND SOME DESIRABLE PRINCIPLES.
ARCHER, JEROME W.; AND OTHERS
THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH COMMITTEE ON SELECTION, RETENTION, AND ADVANCEMENT OF THE COLLEGE TEACHER OF ENGLISH STUDIED DATA SECURED FROM DEPARTMENTS OF ENGLISH IN 26 REPRESENTATIVE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES RESPONDING TO A QUESTIONNAIRE. THE STUDY PROVIDES INFORMATION ON PROCEDURES OF SELECTION, THE NATURE OF THE POSITION, FUNCTION, AND QUALIFICATIONS OF THE TEACHER. HALF OF THE REPORT CONSISTS OF A DESCRIPTION OF PRESENT PRACTICES AND RECOMMENDED PRINCIPLES REGARDING RETENTION, TENURE, AND ADVANCEMENT. THE REPORT SUGGESTS THAT DESPITE THE WIDE VARIATION AMONG INSTITUTIONS IN SELECTION, RETENTION, AND ADVANCEMENT PRACTICES, THERE ARE PATTERNS OF UNIFORMITY WITHIN TYPES OF INSTITUTIONS AND IN SOME AREAS OF THE SUBJECT WITHIN ALL INSTITUTIONS. THUS, IN UNIVERSITIES STRESSING PUBLICATION AS A REQUIREMENT FOR ADVANCEMENT THE TEACHING LOAD IS LIKELY TO BE NINE HOURS. ALSO MOST INSTITUTIONS PLACE GREAT EMPHASIS UPON SUPERIOR TEACHING AS A REQUIREMENT FOR PROMOTION DESPITE THE ADMITTED DIFFICULTY OF OBJECTIVELY EVALUATING TEACHING ABILITY. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE ALSO FOR $1.25 FROM THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH, 508 SOUTH SIXTH STREET, CHAMPAIGN, ILL. 61820. (BN)
