An Assessment by Selected English Teachers in Pennsylvania High Schools of Their Undergraduate Education in Composition.
Dunham, Mildred G.
An attempt to secure information regarding the undergraduate composition training of secondary school English teachers presently teaching in selected Pennsylvania English departments was made in this study. To collect data on the undergraduate composition training of Pennsylvania English teachers, the researcher mailed 1,005 questionnaires to 80 selected English department chairpersons and supervisors for distribution within their departments. Based on the findings of the survey, the researcher reached one major conclusion: a need exists for improvement in the composition training of prospective English teachers educated in Pennsylvania colleges and universities. The nine recommendations made in the study are summarized. (Author/RB)
