Preparing the Teacher of English for the Inner City.
Ether, John A.
The English Record, v20 n1 p71-3, 86 Oct 1969
A revised approach to teacher education is necessary for inner-city teachers, all of whom must cope with their own racism and prejudice, as well as the peculiar problems of the inner-city schools. The high school English teacher particularly needs special training to meet the unique demands made upon his skills in the urban setting. Intensive training in strategies and in materials for teaching remedial reading is essential. Background, for teachers, in black literature and literature dealing with urban development and current social problems should be stressed. Finally, teacher education curriculums should develop in teachers an understanding of issues relevant to urban youth, enabling teachers to provide meaningful classroom experiences. (MF)
