Preparing Teachers for TESOL--Where We've Been, Where We Are, and Maybe Where We Should Be Going.
Womack, Thurston
The number of M. A. programs for preparing TESOL teachers has grown greatly in the past decade. The profession generally has grown and matured during this period. The M. A. program at San Francisco State College was established in 1963 and has graduated over a hundred teachers. A number of developments, particularly in general linguistic theory, in language acquisition and bilingualism, and in social dialects, have affected the profession significantly. The program at San Francisco State, so far as its array of course work and requirements is concerned, appears to have changed little since its beginning. Yet adjustments have been made because of the accumulated experience of the staff, changes in the local population of non-English speakers, and developments in the profession generally. This paper attempts to describe and evaluate the San Francisco program by considering where it has been, where it is, and where it might be going. (Author)
