English Teachers for Junior College Remedial Programs.
Lefevre, Helen E.
After a brief discussion of the problems and defects of junior college remedial or compensatory English programs, the need for adequately trained teachers for these programs is considered. The major areas essential to the training of such teachers are identified as (1) training in English, including oral language and linguistic studies and a broad appreciation of both "established" and more neglected literatures, (2) training in background and techniques, including acquaintance with the junior college movement and its aims, grounding in the social sciences, and familiarity with the methods, materials, and equipment appropriate to the problems of this type of instruction, and (3) an internship at a junior college. A "positive teaching" approach is emphasized in all areas. (BN)
