Stryker, David, Ed.
Special concerns in English education are explored in 11 papers from the 1966 Conference on English Education. Following an introduction by David Stryker, Lindley Stiles discusses important overall trends in teacher education. James Squire points out existing weaknesses in the preparation of English teachers and calls for specific curriculum reforms in these areas. Robert Slack describes a successfully tested program for academically talented high school students. Garda Bowman, Lawana Trout, and William LaPlante offer specific program and teaching suggestions to assist teachers who work with disadvantaged students of all ages, and Raven McDavid, Jr. briefly analyzes the variant American English dialects. Jerry Walker describes the paucity of student teachers' knowledge of library resources and services. Doris Young Kuhn reports efforts to develop a written test for measuring children's responses to literature. John Portz describes his experiences with an NDEA Institute which focused on written composition. Arlin Turner stresses the permanent qualities of literature, which can be either enhanced or annihilated by explication. (This document previously announced as ED 023 685.) (JB)
