A Forecast of Responsibilities of Secondary Teachers of English 1970-2000 A.D., With Implications for Teacher Education.
Farrell, Edmund James
Four panels of 80 experts in learning theory, secondary curriculum, educational technology, and English predicted developments in their fields for the next 30 years, anticipated the effects these developments would have on secondary education, and made recommendations for preservice teacher education programs. The panel of English experts then selected developments, which, if implemented, would have bearing on the responsibilities of secondary English teachers: replacement of letter grades by more effective utilization of intrinsic motives to learn; emphasis on student-paced, continuous-progress learning; individualized instruction through independent study, small group activity, and programmed learning materials; and multi-level ungraded programs for K-12. Based on these projections, the following were chosen by the English panel as some of the most necessary items in the preservice education of secondary English teachers: learning how to use discovery approaches to learning; learning how to reveal the social relevance of English; and learning how to be a creator and manager of learning strategies and systems.
