The Running Water and the Standing Stone.
Squire, James R.
PMLA, v83 n3 p523-9 June 1968
Today, the content-centered curriculum in English--emphasizing the in-depth, rational study of the nature and structures of literature, language, and rhetoric--is changing under the influence of a "new" English--emphasizing the student's experience and involvement with literature. Thus, although the content-centered reforms of the past decade have yielded solid accomplishments, the English profession can further improve American English education if it will now urgently concern itself with (1) strengthening the undergraduate and graduate curriculums for training high school and college teachers, (2) providing inservice training programs in English for school administrators, (3) achieving communication between college and public school English teachers, and (4) developing a reasonably united voice through strong state associations to speak out to administrators, politicians, and the public on the needs of English.
