Educating the Teacher of English: Selected Addresses Delivered at the Conference on English Education (3rd, University of Kentucky, March 18-20, 1965).
Stryker, David, Ed.
The 10 addresses in this volume on teacher education illustrate the conference theme of combining the old with the new. Henry C. Meckel surveys what is good in the current preparation of English teachers, and Carl A. Lefevre and Father Daniel Fogarty discuss, respectively, the contributions of linguistic studies and of current thinking about rhetoric and composition to teacher education programs. The implications of the Conant studies for the teaching of English are presented by Jeremiah S. Finch. William E. Hoth surveys new educational tools relevant to the teaching of English, and William H. Evans outlines the organization, scope, and direction of the Illinois Statewide Curriculum Study Center in the Preparation of Secondary School English Teachers (ISCPET). Needed reforms in the preparation of elementary and secondary school language arts teachers are described by Ruth G. Strickland and Sister M. Phillippa Coogan. Robert E. Lewis presents the problems of teaching English to the culturally disadvantaged, and Don Davies concludes with a discussion of national trends in teacher education.
