Working Together: To Look at the Past, To Examine the Present, To Create a Future.
Brooks, Charlotte
In 1977, the focus of teachers of English--and of all members of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE)--should be the development of the arts and skills of reading and writing, especially by students who have been unsuccessful in those areas. This focus, with literature as its content, should include talking, listening, and understanding and should concern three groups: young children just learning to use English, learners in late childhood and early adolescence who have not learned to read or write well, and older adolescents and adults in colleges or continuing education programs who may have different dialects or who may be nontraditional students. In order to help potentially successful users of English, teachers--and all segments of NCTE--must develop, publish, and share research about teaching strategies and models. (JM)
