Teaching English in the Two-Year College.
Barton, Thomas L.; Beachner, Anna M.
Of special use to departments in 4-year colleges and universities which have responsibilities for preparing teachers of English and for developing in-service projects for 2-year college personnel, this book details instructional techniques and curricular materials for the community college teacher of English and for those in preparation for such assignments. New teacher-learner roles, unconventional approaches to language learning, and divergent points of view toward traditional course content are topics included. Also provided are materials on evaluation of student progress, descriptions of special facilities such as learning laboratories, descriptions for organizing course content and placing students in appropriate programs, and new ways for involving staff in identifying and meeting varied student needs and interests. In the chapters--spanning such areas as written expression, improvement of reading, and elective offerings, there is both stated and implied identification of the contribution to be made by important supportive personnel (i.e., counselors, librarians, and learning specialists.)
