English Education Today: Selected Addresses Delivered at the NCTE Conference on English Education (Indiana University, March 28-30, 1963).
Burton, Dwight L., Ed.
Thirteen addresses from the 1963 Conference on English Education deal with problems faced by educators responsible for preparing prospective teachers of English. A brief introduction in which Dwight L. Burton affirms that teacher education is a sound blend of liberal arts and professional education precedes Robert C. Pooley's discussion of "The Scholarly and Professional Role of the Specialist in the Teaching of English." Methods courses in the teaching of English are defended, defined, and evaluated by George H. Henry, David Stryker, and Agnes V. Boner respectively. Major concepts in educational research to be taught to prospective teachers are presented by David H. Russell; and the responsibility and problems of the English education specialist in conducting and supervising research are discussed in papers by Margaret Early and John A. Brownell. Graduate studies and 5th-year programs in English education are considered by Stanley B. Kegler and Richard A. Meade. Lennox Grey develops a case for and against the three-component English Curriculum. The College Entrance Examination Board's 1962 Summer Institutes are evaluated by John C. Gerber, and the bulletin concludes with Dora V. Smith's "Comments and Reactions to the Conference." (This document previously announced as ED 023 682.) (SW)
