The Language Arts Preparation of Elementary School Teachers.
Chase, Naomi C.
A national survey of 80 universities was made to determine their course offerings designed to prepare elementary-school English teachers to teach listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Survey questions asked whether or not the universities presently required certain specific courses in liberal arts and in education as well as whether or not such courses should be required. Liberal arts courses surveyed were foreign language, speech, oral composition, creative dramatics, written composition, the nature of the English language, American and English literature, and literature in a foreign language; education courses were the sociological and psychological bases of teaching, observation of children in schools, methods of teaching reading and language, children's literature, and student teaching. Results indicated that colleges required insufficient liberal arts work to back up the professional courses required. (Tables presenting data from the survey and a list of universities surveyed are included.) (JS)
