There's a Real World Out There, and That's Where It's Happening, Baby.
Doster, William C.
An imaginative characterization portrays English teachers as one of four types: "Mighty Stonehenges,""Mad Mods,""Limpid Gazelles," and "Neo-realists." Of these types, the first three represent respectively the "ivory tower traditionalists,""latter day saints in the spell of experimental programs," and obsequious followers who jot verbatim quotations from a Mighty Stonehenge. The "Neo-realist" serves as a model for what can be done to change the isolationist image of the English teacher and put him in effective contact with his class. Ways to stimulate a more "realistic" approach to English teaching at all levels are briefly discussed. (CW)
