Modern Language Association of America, New York, NY.
Nearly 100 scholars and teachers gathered in three special conferences on the teaching of English in higher education to discuss and identify areas of special importance in the junior and community college English program, the undergraduate curriculum, and graduate programs in English. A paper was presented by Richard Worthen on the need for internship programs on junior college campuses which would be conducted cooperatively by college and university undergraduate English departments. Other topics discussed were: (1) how to improve English instruction in the junior college, (2) graduate programs for community college English teachers, (3) what a Director of Graduate Studies in English (DGSE) needs to know about the U.S. Office of Education, (4) duties and functions of a DGSE, (5) important considerations in initiating a Ph.D. program, (6) graduate enrollments and requirements, and (7) freshman composition courses. The agenda for each meeting, reports and other information given participants, the summary of open discussions, and a roster of participants are also included. (BN)
