Accountability English Style: Dialogue, a Two-Way street, The Cards on the Table.
Worthen, Richard, Ed.; Cohen, Florence, Ed.
California English Journal, v8 n1 p7-11 February 1972
The accountability of the English teacher is discussed from the standpoint of who they believe they are accountable to and who is properly accountable to them. The English teacher is said to be accountable to his students, his colleagues within and outside his discipline, to the parents of his students and to the larger local community which supports the schools, and to state, national, and other local groups. Those who are said to be accountable to the English teacher are the students, the parents, administrators, and the wider communities. It is concluded that it is the English teacher's obligation to take up an active role in clarifying for himself, his students, his colleagues, and his several communities what he is trying to do in the educational process, what conditions he needs in order to have a chance of success, and what means may be used to evaluate that success.
