Thompson, Denys; And Others
The conception of English as something socially learned and of central importance to the development of the individual has obvious implications for the teacher who hopes to develop in his pupils good speaking, writing, listening, and reading. The teacher must cooperate with the child's growth by providing a climate for maturation, an enriching of the child's environment by exposing him to new and wide-ranging experiences, both actual and literary at the primary levels, and principally through literature at the more advanced levels. A consideration of the teaching of English in each of its three aspects--speaking, writing, and reading--completes the first paper. The topics of the remaining five papers are the teaching of English and the general development of children, the aims of teaching English, language and environment considered in relation to knowledge and proficiency, literature and values, and school facilities for the teaching of English.
