Transcription of Tapes Made at NCTE Pre-Convention Workshop on Junior College English, Milwaukee, November 1968.
Roth, Audrey J.
The transcribed text of a pre-convention National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) workshop as recorded on tape contains remarks of both Negro and Caucasian discussants on relevancy in the junior college curriculum. Initial discussion centers on the youth crisis, identity, student demonstrations, and "Establishment" values. Black studies and Negro aspirations are viewed in the light of historical and personal examples. Linguistic problems, ghettos, and integration are also mentioned, revealing undercurrents of thought related to educational systems.
