Summary

In 1977, to determine current conditions in the teaching of English, a questionnaire was distributed from the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) headquarters to a selected sample of secondary schools. Four populations were chosen for study: schools that had participated in a 1968 study, schools that had consistently produced winners in NCTE's Achievement Awards in Writing competition, schools noted for making special efforts to reduce class size in English, and a random sample of schools nationally. This report presents the results obtained from 316 schools (51 percent response rate). Separate chapters describe the data regarding class size, teaching load, and the teaching of composition; the organization of the curriculum; the English department; and testing in English. The final chapter summarizes results from the national sample and considers some of the differences in the other groups of schools. A copy of the questionnaire is included. (GW)
