Douglas, Wallace W.
A set of curriculum papers written mainly by teachers who attended workshops in continuing education is presented. This set is a collection of general or theoretical essays, in which teachers confront the problems of the English that has been emerging over the last three or four years. The intent of these papers is to provoke significant curriculum change by changing teacher attitudes. Values of these essays are listed as follows: (1) They give examples of good teaching materials; (2) They show teachers moving on their own in the realm of theory; and (3) They illustrate evidence of the workings of curriculum change. This document is divided into the following sections: And What Are We About?; Creative Thinking through Class Experiences; Papers for a New Curriculum; and References. (For related documents, see TE 002 936 - 939.) (Author/CK)
