CRABB, ALFRED L., JR., ED.
THE FIRST REGIONAL MEETINGS SPONSORED BY THE KENTUCKY COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH (KCTE) FOR APPROXIMATELY 85 HIGH SCHOOL ENGLISH DEPARTMENT CHAIRMEN WERE HELD IN HOPKINSVILLE AND LEXINGTON IN NOVEMBER, 1967. PARTICIPANTS RECEIVED COPIES OF THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH (NCTE) RECOMMENDATIONS FOR HIGH SCHOOL DEPARTMENTS OF ENGLISH AND HEARD ADDRESSES BY DR. WILLIAM EVANS OF SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY AND DR. J.N. HOOK OF THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS. WORKSHOP SESSIONS FOLLOWING THE ADDRESSES YIELDED NUMEROUS RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CONSIDERATION AND ACTION AT LOCAL AND STATE LEVELS. AMONG RECOMMENDATIONS PROPOSED WERE (1) THE DISTRIBUTION TO SCHOOL SYSTEMS OF A RESOLUTION THAT THE POSITION OF DEPARTMENT CHAIRMAN BE ESTABLISHED AND THAT ITS ROLE BE FORMALLY OUTLINED, (2) THE FORMATION OF A COMMITTEE TO FORMULATE A STATEMENT ON THE WORKING RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ENGLISH DEPARTMENTS AND SCHOOL LIBRARIANS, (3) THE PREPARATION OF A FORMAL STATEMENT DESCRIBING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE SCHOOLS AND THEIR COOPERATING TEACHERS, AND THE COLLEGES AND THEIR STUDENT TEACHERS, AND (4) THE ACTIVE INVOLVEMENT OF NEW TEACHERS IN DEPARTMENT ACTIVITIES. (APPENDICES CONTAIN A POLICY STATEMENT ON THE DEPARTMENT CHAIRMAN'S ROLE, A KCTE RESOLUTION ON ADOPTION OF NON-HARDCOVER TEXTUAL MATERIALS, AND AN NCTE RESOLUTION COMMENDING STATE AND LOCAL SUPPORT FOR THE "STUDENT'S FREEDOM TO READ.")
