Allen, Harold B.; And Others
Four position papers on language education for the disadvantaged serve as the basis for the second stage of a three-stage seminar and underscore the need for a new look at the teaching of English, its function, and its recorded contribution to the culture. Harold B. Allen's paper, "What English Teachers Should Know About Their Language," is followed by that of William Labov, "The Non-Standard Vernacular of the Negro Community: Some Practical Suggestions.""The Grammars of English and the Language Arts" and "Values in the Teaching of English and the Language Arts" are written by H. A. Gleason, Jr. and Carl A. Lefevre respectively. (RL)
