City University English Teachers: A Self-Report Regarding Remedial Teaching.
Bossone, Richard M.; Weiner, Max
With the recognition that a gap exists between the traditional doctoral programs in English which focus on literature and linguistics and the need for skills and methodology training (to teach poorly prepared undergraduate students), a study was conducted at the City University of New York (CUNY). This report contains the results of the study, data for which were obtained from questionnaires returned by 171 CUNY English teachers. An introduction lists the six objectives of the study and explains the study procedure; part two discusses the background and training of CUNY English teachers; part three contains teachers' opinions regarding students' problems in English (specifically reading, writing, speaking, and listening); part four provides information on the teaching methods and materials employed; part five consists of opinions regarding the improvement of training for CUNY English teachers; and part six includes a summary and recommendations. Six tables of findings illustrate the text. (JM)
