Dartmouth Miscellaneous Papers: The Education of Teachers of English, English with the "Disadvantaged," and The Elements of Writing about Literature.
Grommon, Alfred H.; And Others
Grouped together are four miscellaneous papers from the 1966 Dartmouth Seminar. The first by Alfred Grommon addresses the education of teachers of English, commenting on the current status of teachers and putting forth some proposals which reflect the changes in attitudes toward teacher education programs and a recognition of the social, professional, and educational context in which such teacher education must occur. The second paper comments on educational research, suggesting that with the impact of research and development arising out of research, there is likely to be a more rapid shift from the personal to the technical approach to teaching. The third paper considers teaching the disadvantaged child and comments on a creative teaching approach based on recognizing the need to give disadvantaged children that minimum of practical literacy which a sophisticated society demands. The last paper by Alan Purves discusses writing about literature (literary criticism) and the elements of writing that an individual might combine in any number of ways to fashion an essay. (HOD)
