National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification.; National Council of Teachers of English, Champaign, IL.; Modern Language Association of America, New York, NY.
The first four articles in this collection disucss the importance of the study which developed the Guidelines for the Preparation of Teachers of English and explain the use of the guidelines. Following articles evaluate the teacher's role as a professional, review the history of the preparation of teachers of English, and summarize the history of the English Teacher Preparation Study. The six guidelines with their numerous detailed subheadings--an attempt by the English profession to describe the standards it believes are required for English teaching--are then presented. Concluding articles contain nine short "classic" statements on teacher preparation in English, and describe the elementary and secondary school certification requirements for teaching English in each of the 50 states.
