Re-Vision: Classroom Practices in Teaching English 1974-1975. Twelfth Report of the Committee on Classroom Practices.
Berger, Allen, Ed.; Smith, Blanche Hope, Ed.
The focus of this book, "re-vision," derived from concerns expressed in the open meeting of the November 1973 convention of the National Council of Teachers of English by teachers interested in changes in classroom practices which result from reflection on a particular problem and the subsequent search for a solution. Following an opening article by Allen Berger, "Vision and Re-Vision," the book is divided into four sections. "Opening Classrooms and Individualizing Activities" contains 16 articles concerning a variety of approaches to the teaching of the different language arts. "Changing the Medium" includes 7 articles which discuss the uses of audiovisual aids in teaching language arts. In "Reconsidering Writing" 10 articles view various facets of the teaching of composition, and in "Changing Approaches to Literature" 12 articles explore literature instruction. Writers of the articles teach in elementary and secondary schools, colleges, and universities in three provinces and 23 states. (JM)
