A Statement on the Preparation of Teachers of English and the Language Arts.
National Council of Teachers of English, Urbana, IL.
This booklet is intended for use by administrators and curriculum planners in the liberal arts (specifically English) and in education, those involved in institutions for teacher preparation, officers of state departments of education, and those responsible for accrediting institutions and planning inservice programs for teachers. Part one identifies the essential knowledge, skills, and attitudes that must be attained by teachers of English. Part two lists experiences considered essential to the development of a well-qualified teacher. Questions that planners of curricula for teachers and teacher educators must answer for themselves (issues in the establishment of standards, emphasis in training, and so on) are outlined in part three. A resolution passed by the National Council of Teachers of English on discouraging the use of competency-based teacher education programs is also included. (KS)
