The Teaching of English in the Seventies; A Report on the Annual Conference (3rd, Athens, Ga., July 25-26, 1974).
Georgia Council of Teachers of English, Rome.; Georgia Univ., Athens. Georgia Center for Continuing Education.
The four primary purposes of the Annual Conference for the Teaching of English in Georgia are to bring together a broad spectrum of teachers and administrators concerned with the teaching of reading, English, and the language arts; to provide opportunities for teachers to talk to other teachers in order to share their problems and their successes; to bring to the conference qualified persons for a discussion of the political and social pressures that affect teachers and teaching in general; and to encourage the exchange of ideas through small group sessions and the exploration of available resources. This document contains a speech by Stephen Judy entitled "Teaching English in the 70's: Prospects and Priorities"; an excerpt from a discussion on accountability, competency-based education, and politics; reports from the group sessions; a shorter speech by Judy; and comments and suggestions from the conference participants.
