Liberal Fine Arts Qiterall poetic education The English department added to the university's cur- ulum with a program in English as a Second Language. ople with teaching certificates could add the 12-hour en- Jrsement, which included language study and ethodology. The department received approval in May of 82 from the Texas Education Agency and added the en- mrsement this year. Dr. David Merrell, chairman of the department, said the ,dorsement provided a needed service because much of the ,S. population did not speak English as a first language. ie endorsement also gave education students a greater op- irtunity to teach in Texas, he said. Aubrey Green, who spent 17 years at Lubbock Christian ollege and received his Ph.D. from Texas Tech, was added the staff this year. He coordinated the Developmental iglish Program which aimed at helping students who did at excel in high school English and needed help in college iglish. The English department sponsored the annual Retta Scott arrett creative writing contest and awarded prizes to win- :rs in poetry, fiction and non-fiction. The Pickwicker literary magazine sponsored by the depart- ent received third place in the Texas Intercollegiate Press ssociation competition. The magazine contained poetry, 'ose fiction, essays, photography and graphics. The department continued its practice of bringing writers id poets to campus for presentations and workshops. Two oets were brought to the campus this year. In the fall, Fred happell, poet novelist, gave a reading of his works and con- cted a writing workshop. Chappell worked at the Univer- ily of North Carolina in Greensboro. it Wife Www! Poet Naomi Shihad Nye came to ACU during the spring semester. She met with the creative writing class, offered an afternoon workshop and read from her works. Nye's "Hugg- ing the jokebox" was selected as one of five winners of the 1981 National Poetry Series competition. Merrell said, "An English degree was used by many students as a pre-professional degree leading to law school or another type of graduate school. Or the degree could give students a broader education that might lead to journalism, advertising, business . . Merrell said he believed the English department provided a well-rounded curriculum from which many students could benefit. -- Krirty Pendergrart x f..2 ' -.-- f R th t Ni? 4. 5. 5. .i S Lett: Julianne Nelson reads during the Retta Scott Garrett contest.
