Learning to Teach: Teaching to Learn.
Stull, William L.
This state-of-the-art report reviews the development of a philosophy of composition instruction through the decade of the 1970s in three principal forms--proclamations, do-it-yourself formulas, and research--and cites extensive examples of each. It stresses that composition teachers must continue to learn about their profession, while they resist any efforts to divide English departments into separate entities of literature, composition, and speech. A decade of evolving English teacher training programs is also described, with four approaches specifically cited. (AEA)
