Survey of Faculty Attitudes and Practices Pertaining to Student Reading and Writing.
A brief statement of the purpose for the interviews of 35 faculty members outside the English department at Diablo Valley College concerning the improvement of student reading and writing skills is followed by a sampling of 10 questions used in conducting the interviews to discover teacher requirements, evaluation criteria, problems, involvement, interest, and suggestions. After noting general impressions, the paper proceeds to outline and discuss at some length the instructors' attitudes and practices. Recommendations for implementing the total faculty responsibility for language skills development conclude the report. (AF)
