Follow-Up Report on the NDEA Institute for Advanced Study in English Language and Composition Conducted at the State University College Cortland in Summer 1968.
The first section of this report describes the follow-up program designed to determine any improvements in the teaching of English language and composition achieved by participants of the NDEA Institute at State University College Cortland, N. Y., 1968. It covers (1) the background and planning of the program, (2) school visitations of the summer participants, (3) the purpose and program of the 1-day conference, and (4) a summary of the findings. Appendix 1, comprising the main portion of the report, presents the material on which the evaluation is based--teaching and conference reports, demonstration classes, panel discussions--and provides evidence that the participants did benefit from their exposure to linguistic and rhetorical theories at the Institute. Appendix 2 contains written exhibits illustrating aspects of the program discussed in the report. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (JM)
