Summary

Traditions and emerging trends in the teaching of linguistics and composition are examined in this collection of papers. Joseph Mersand predicts a future emphasis on the subject of English as a discipline, leading to a more adequate preparation and increased supervision of English teachers and a greater stress in the classroom on written composition, the study of language development, sophisticated uses of instructional materials, and individualized instruction. Robert Donaldson charges that, despite a revolution in the field, few English teachers have incorporated linguistic insights into their classroom practices. Harold King surveys the growth of scientific investigations into language structure, and Marvin Greene articulates the role of linguistics in the teaching of English. Joe Darwin Palmer elaborates on Noam Chomsky's theory that transformational grammar can provide sets of rules to generate all the correct sentences in the English language, and Samuel Stone suggests some classroom applications of generative grammar. Floyd Bergman describes an individualized, sequential program to eliminate some of the problems in teaching composition, and Henry Maloney indicates methods of improving the content of junior high school compositions.
