This bulletin reports on condensations of tape-recorded lectures and discussions from a workshop which trained a nucleus of Baltimore City Public School personnel in new approaches to the study of the English language. Designed to serve as an orientation, it is made up of six major sections: (1) Charlton Laird discusses the history, nature, and function of language, (2) Robert DiPietro explains the traditional, structural, and transformational approaches to the analysis, study, and teaching of language, (3) Roger Shuy shows the causes of dialect differences and demonstrates how "good" or "bad" usage is effected by historical, psychological, and sociological principles, (4) William Stewart discusses the historical, sociological, and foreign language influences which congribute to the shaping of systems of nonstandard speech, (5) Rosemary Wilson describes the benefits of a reading program based on linguistic principles, and (6) Edgar Schuster offers a structural grammar lesson on modification of nouns. A list of references for language and linguistics is also included. (DD)
