Summary

Future teachers of English at the college level should initially be allowed to discuss and consider some of the important facts of this decade: the dwindling resources of our planet, overpopulation, hunger and disease, and the increase in global communication. They should be informed about the small number of job openings at present in the field of English. They should be helped to master the language more fully, read with increased comprehension, and write more clearly and forcefully in preparation for their first jobs. A full curriculum for the future English teacher would offer students in the first semester of their first year the following courses: Advanced Composition, History and Structure of Language, Educational Psychology of Teaching and Learning, Greek and Roman Literature in Translation, African Literature, and a Tutorial.
