The Department of English and the Department of Speech and Theatre at Kutztown (Pa.) State College, with the assistance of the Dean of Teacher Education and the Director of Placement, have developed a new program for the preparation of teachers in the disciplines of English, speech and theatre. The project was begun locally to provide graduates with the best possible chance in an employment market that is not only shrinking but also requiring a different kind of teacher--one more broadly skilled than institutions have produced in the past. The new program in communications represents an effort to produce graduates not only trained in literature and speech but with genuine class experience in other media, skill in teaching reading and writing, and more than token abilities to handle the extracurricula activities so often required of teachers in these areas. Instead of the earlier 36 credits in English or Speech and Theatre, 60 credits are now required, with approximately one-third allotted to each of the three areas of language, writing, and literature and speech/theatre. The student is given considerable choice within these areas and is not forced to go beyond the 128 credits needed for graduation. (Author/JA)
