The National Study of English in the Junior College.
Shugrue, Michael F.
This report focuses upon the findings of a comprehensive, cooperative study of the junior college English department, its curriculum, and the role of its chairman. The study, built upon earlier research and publications and conducted over a 1-year period involving more than 1,000 junior colleges, describes: (1) background, (2) goals and procedures, (3) the 2-year college, (4) organization and curriculum of the junior college English department, (5) the junior college English instructor, and (6) the department chairman. Eight major recommendations for discussion with an explication of each are provided in view of the potential influence of the junior college on higher education in America during the 1970's. A book covering the national study is to appear early in 1971. (RL)
