The Mythologizing of Mark Twain by Philip D Beidler( Book )

6 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Readers of Mark Twain seldom doubt his genius, but defining that genius and locating its source continue to challenge students of American literature. Equally elusive is an explanation of the intriguing phenomenon of Twain as a mythic figure, both shaper and embodier of an American mythos. Perhaps no single critical approach can adequately assess the complex force behind Samuel Clemens and Mark Twain. This native genius, our quintessential artist, rightfully provokes a number of powerful responses, as these original essays demonstrate

An independent evaluation of the 1962 summer institute program of the Commission on English of the College Entrance Examination Board; with recommendations for future institutes by John C Gerber( Book )

4 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The objectives were to evaluate the 1962 summer institute program of the commission on english of the college entrance examination board (ceeb). Each of the 20 institutes was evaluated separately since each was relatively independent. As part of the effort, an attempt was made to evaluate the effect of the institute training upon the participants after they had returned to their classrooms. The procedural tasks were (1) to establish criteria for the evaluation, (2) to collect data on the institutes themselves, and (3) to evaluate the data in terms of the criteria. The conclusions reported were (1) institutes should aim to improve the academic preparation and teaching skills of the participants, (2) staff should include a director, individual course instructors, a workshop supervisor, and a part-time secretary, (3) participants should be screened for homogeneity, (4) curriculum should be the standard one devised by ceeb, (5) diagnostic tests should not be necessary, (6) physical characteristics of an institute should accommodate the local situation, and (7) followup visits should be made by the workshop supervisor to the high schools during the second semester following the institute.
