What's Wrong with Our Teaching of English?
Rousseau, G.S.
Harvard Alumni Bulletin, v70 n13 p18-23 Apr 27 1968
The teacher's and the student's plight with literature as it is being taught in colleges and universities today is discussed. Neither answers nor solutions are suggested. Instead problems that stem from the following situations are examined: (1) the heterogeneous population of undergraduate English classes, (2) the lack of a clear definition of what English is, (3) the student's lack of interest in the literature and life of past ages, and (4) the student's concern with communication and insistence that literature relate to his present life and needs.
