A Survey of the Teaching of English in Secondary Schools.
Godshalk, Fred I.
To indicate what high school students have actually studied during the previous 10 years of changing secondary school curricula, this document reports the findings of a questionnaire survey conducted among 2,247 students who took the 1965-66 College Entrance Examination Board's English Composition Test. The report is divided into three parts--composition, language, and literature--and the data is organized so that the relative emphasis upon various instructional activities, as reported by the students, will be apparent. Some of the topics covered are the frequency of composition assignments, grading, linguistic subjects studied, literature read, and skills practiced. The facts presented are interpreted to help teachers improve their instruction. (JM)
