The Approaches to English Program. Final Report.
Funded under a Title 3, ESEA Grant, this project for the study and demonstration of methods and materials for teaching English was a cooperative effort between the Curriculum Center in English at Northwestern University and the Elk Grove Training and Development Center (Arlington Heights, Illinois). The major focus of the project was the facilitating of teacher growth and subsequent classroom changes. Teachers were placed in seminar settings where they were encouraged to participate in self-determined and self-directed programs. Individual teachers were helped (on either a personal, small group, or total group basis) to inquire into a problem they had undertaken and to engage in the necessary reorganization of attitudes for behavioral change in the classroom. Evaluations indicated that the main objectives of the program--(1) to guide participants to increased knowledge of English, (2) to facilitate the modification of teacher attitudes and classroom behavior, and (3) to train participants for leadership roles in in-service programs in their schools--were successfully met. (Appendices include syllabi for the seminars and evaluation forms with results.) [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] )Author/LH)
