English in Vocational Education Programs: Vocational Education Programs in English.
Eidson, Donald
Five questions that can aid teachers in making an assessment of the role of English in vocational education programs and in examining attitudes prior to attempting to answer these questions include: (1) Should state certification boards require that teachers of English in vocational education programs have specialized training? (2) Should high schools and area vocational schools offer a course in English designed especially for vocational education students? (3) Should graduate programs in English offer degree programs aimed at training candidates to teach English to prospective teachers of English in vocational education programs? (4) Should vocational education programs in English be designed to insure that offerings go beyond the training required by the nature of the student's employment? and (5) Should literature be a part of English programs designed for vocational training on the high school level? An examination of these questions may lead, not necessarily to agreement on all points, but to a unity of purpose and an exhibition of good will toward the role of English in vocational education programs.
