The English Program in the Two-Year College.
Fujii, Gertrude S.
Teaching in the two-year college, which was once considered to be a stepping-stone to teaching at a four-year college or university, has become a unique profession in itself. In the years ahead, community colleges should be actively involved in cooperating in developing English curricula. Prospective teachers of English at two-year schools need to know grammatical principles, spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure; need to be able to adjust to a variety of learning styles and teaching methods; need a good foundation in the teaching of English as a second language; and need interdisciplinary training in reading, writing, psychology, and speech. Graduate schools must expand training in the specialized area of teaching in the two-year college, following such programs as those at the University of California. (TJ)
