The English Teacher as Career Counselor.
Savory, Jerold J.
This paper argues that it is necessary for English departments to move in several nontraditional directions to establish curricula and internships for women interested in nonacademic professions such as business, industry, and government. Three suggestions are given to English teachers: help students develop skills, such as perceptive reading and critical writing, which are "marketable"; become as concerned and informed about sex discrimination in nonacademic professions as in academic professions; demand more of all students in composition and writing; and develop a curriculum which will leave students prepared for nonteaching careers and instill in students a love of language and literature because of their intrinsic worth.
