Metropolitan Detroit Bureau of School Studies, Inc., MI.
In this collection of papers, a number of educational innovations of recent years are applied to the language arts curriculum. Section one, compiled by recorders in conference study groups, examines (1) new materials and methods which are relevant for today's English teacher, (2) research findings and their implications for the classroom teacher, (3) such organizational patterns as modular scheduling applied to new instructional approaches, (4) the problems of providing suitable materials, techniques, and procedures to help the reluctant reader, and (5) the various roles of the teacher, the administrator, and the government in innovating and stimulating creativity and curriculum reform. Section two is comprised of an address by Thomas P. Ryan, "The Language Arts Teacher in 1970," in which he describes a future educational environment as including individualization of instruction and learning activity "packages," reorganization of schools and environmental management, massive curriculum reforms, and inservice workshops for the professional staffs of public schools.
