The Dartmouth Seminar: Analysis of Proceedings and a Bibliography.
Wenck, Aileen Alana Hendricks
This master's thesis focuses on publications resulting from the Dartmouth Seminar, an international conference of English teachers held at Dartmouth College during August and September of 1966 in which the fifty participants advocated changes in the teaching of English to correspond with world-wide technological advances. Following an introductory essay, the second chapter explores eleven points of agreement among participants, based on the two general seminar reports, "The Uses of English" by Herbert J. Muller and "Growth through English" by John Dixon. Chapter three discusses the five specific reports of the seminar: "Language and Language Learning," edited by Albert H. Marchwardt; "Drama in the Classroom," edited by Douglas Barnes; "Response to Literature," edited by James R. Squire; "Creativity in English," edited by Geoffrey Summerfield; and "The Uses of Myth," edited by Paul A. Olson. Chapter four consists of a selective, annotated bibliography of published articles in official journals as well as books published by the National Council of Teachers of English, all pertaining directly to the Dartmouth Seminar. A list of references is included. (JM)
