Senior English in Selected High Schools.
Trammell, Robert Thomas
In this study, 50 teachers of senior English were surveyed regarding their academic preparation and the English programs and curricular practices in their schools (18 selected high schools in Alabama). An analysis of existing professional literature was made to determine the status of current senior English programs and to ascertain what criteria and recommendations had been developed regarding effective teaching strategies; academic and professional preparation of senior English teachers; teaching responsibilities of senior English teachers; and senior English programs in literature, language, reading, and composition. Findings indicated that the English programs selected for analysis were on the whole slightly weaker than those included in the 1968 national study by James Squire and Roger Applebee and slightly stronger than those included in the 1964 NCTE survey. Recommendations for improving senior English courses were then made to the senior English teachers and administrative personnel in the selected schools. (Author/JB)
