SLATE (Support for Learning and Teaching of English). Volume 1.
National Council of Teachers of English, Urbana, IL.
These newsletters, produced during the first year of activity of a special committee of the National Council of Teachers of English, focus on the back-to-the-basics movement as it affects the teaching of English. The first newsletter describes the establishment of SLATE as an action wing of the council. The other seven deal in turn with specific issues: literacy, grammar and usage, composition, censorship of instructional materials, language and dialect, spelling, and reading. Each begins with a statement of the issues, continues with a summary of professional viewpoints, suggests strategies for action, and includes a brief list of further resources. (AA)
