Reflections on High School English: NDEA Institute Lectures 1965.
Tate, Gary, Ed.
Lectures presented at the 1965 National Defense Education Act Institutes for Advanced Study in English are presented in this book. Selected for their interest to both experienced and prospective English teachers, the lectures are grouped into four categories. (1) Of general interest to the English teacher are John Gerrietts' portrait of the English teacher, Erwin R. Steinberg's description of trends in English curriculums, John Senior's comments on the American's ignorance of western culture, and Irving Deer's call for study of the mass media. (2) Seven lectures on composition, delivered by Stephen Dunning, Arnol d Lazarus, Wallace W. Douglas, Monroe C. Beardsley, Edward P. J. Corbett, Webb Salmon, and David P. Harris, cover teaching methods, editing, prose styles, selection of topics for compositions, and the testing of writing ability. (3) Subjects of four lectures on language are changes in usage (Margaret M. Bryant), ideas emerging from recent language research (Charlton Laird), dimensions of usage (David DeCamp), and inductive teaching methods (Mary Key). (4) Four lectures in literature dealing with the use of the literature of various English-speaking countries, approaches to a poem, duplication of literary works in high school and college, and testing in poetry study were prepared by Joseph Jones, John C. Gerber, Arnold L. Goldsmith, and Arthur R. Borden, Jr. (JS)
