Journalism Teaching-Advising Courses at West Virginia University and 103 Other Schools.
Yagle, Pamela D.
To consider the most effective journalism teacher education program that West Virginia University could offer, 117 college journalism teaching-advising programs were surveyed in the United States. Faculty of 104 schools (88.8 percent) responded to one of three mailings. The findings indicated that most instructors who were surveyed enroll all types of majors in journalism education classes, the most commonly used textbook is "Scholastic Journalism" by Earl English and Clarence Hach, most schools have no course or rank prerequisites for entering journalism teaching-advising courses, teacher certification requirements range from six to twenty-four hours of journalism, persons conducting teacher education programs at almost one-half of the journalism schools responding have not previously taught high school journalism, and most high school journalism teachers feel ill-prepared to teach and advise high school publications. It was concluded that the West Virginia University journalism teacher education program is limited, but closely resembles the type of journalism teacher education curricula for high school teachers provided by more than one-half of the schools responding.
