Teaching the Teacher of English: Selected Papers and Addresses Delivered at the Conference on English Education (6th, University of Colorado, March 28-30, 1968). Part II.
Haugh, Oscar M., Ed.
The 11 papers in this collection deal with problems and ideas in teaching the teacher of English. The first three--by Charlton Laird, Oscar A. Bouise, and Sheila Schwartz--are concerned with the character and development of a "good teacher of literature," with giving him an adequate background in literature, and with the nature and training of the humanities teacher. Three papers by John S. Simmons, Andrew Macleish, and Norman C. Stageberg explore topics in language: the linguistic training necessary for the secondary English teacher, the number and kinds of grammar he should master, and the value of teaching structural ambiguity. Next, Richard L. Larson proposes a course in rhetoric for English teachers, Ross M. Jewell tells the beginning teacher how to evaluate writing, and Elmer E. Baker, Jr., deals with preparing teachers for the effective teaching of oral language. The last two essays, by J. Harvey Littrell and Robert E. Shafer, deal with the preparation of teachers of reading and of the disadvantaged. (This document previously announced as ED 025 523.) (LH)
