American Teaching About Russian.
Black, Cyril E., Ed.; Thompson, John M., Ed.
An overview of the status of Russian and non-Western studies in American schools serves as a handbook for educators and administrators at all levels. Three major essays include: (1) "Graduate Study of Russian," (2) "Russian and Other Non-Western Areas in Undergraduate Education," and (3) "The Study of Russian in Secondary Education." Methods, teacher training, curriculum content, and placement are discussed in this appraisal of the achievements, problems, and shortcomings of the American approach to non-Western studies. Concrete suggestions for future development are similarly offered. Tables, largely covering the period from 1946 to 1958, include data concerning educational degrees and Columbia, Harvard, and Indiana Universities. (RL)
