Some Notes on Behavioral Objectives for English.
Lindley, Daniel A., Jr.
NEATE Leaflet, v70 n1 p20-23 Feb 1971
English teachers are too prone to see themselves in an either/or position "vis-a-vis" behavioral objectives: either they accept them or they don't. Because behavior has always been in existence, so have behavioral objectives. Taxpayers expect teachers to elicit certain behaviors from their offspring concerning language. Also, English teachers have been too prone to focus on long-range goals at the expense of immediate ones. In conclusion, English teachers have a responsibility to effect meaningful changes in the verbal behavior of their students. (CK)
