Goal Making for English Teaching.
Maloney, Henry B., Ed.
Originally presented at a series of NCTE Spring Institutes on the topic "Behavioral Objectives/Humanistic Goals: Bridging the Gap," the papers in this monograph are divided into four sections. Sections one contains personal credos on the goals of English teaching: "McNamara's Band and the Educational Edsel" by Charles Weingartner; "English Teaching: Some Humanistic Goals and a Personal Credo" by Philip Ortego; "Freedom, Dignity, and the Telic Intent" by Maxwell Goldberg; and "The Doubting Game and the Believing Game" by Peter Elbow. In section two an American behaviorist's argument in favor of behavioral objectives ("Humanism Requires Behavioral Objectives" by Lanny Morreau) is responded to by a British alumnus of the Dartmouth Conference ("Take It from--Where?" by James Britton). The two papers in section three are by poets, the practicing humanists: "By Fools Like Me" by Naomi Madgett and "Capturing 'People of the South Wind'" by William Stafford. Finally, in the last section, are the statements of speakers who confronted the basic issue of bridging the gap: "How to Love Big Brother, Live in Walden Two, and Enjoy Consciousness Three" by Alan Purves; "A Sympathetic (?) Look at Goals, Objectives, and Measurement" by Henry Dyer; and "Behavioral Objectives and Accountability--Are We Asking the Right Questions?" by James Squire. (HOD)
