Reform in English.
Kitzhaber, Albert R.
College English, v26 n5 p337-344 February 1965
In a discussion of the problems involved in preparing for the first National Defense Education Act, Title 11-funded summer institutes for teachers of English, this article emphasizes difficulties that possibly might be encountered by the profession in directing and teaching effectively these training seminars for the first time. Recommendations include--(1) the responsibility to instruct all levels of English, (2) college-school cooperation, (3) the study of both language and rhetoric, and (4) the establishment of practical criteria for professional advancement. Also commented on are elementary and secondary school teacher preparation and the need for closer cooperation between the Modern Language Association and the National Council of Teachers of English.
