Dr. Forward
Probably many of the
teachers and school adminis-(
trators back on the campus,
this summer remember a
soft s p o k e n , white-haired j
gentleman who has probably j
taught more University of(
Nebraska - students than any j
other faculty member still ac-!
live in the institution. i
Last month one of the guid
ing lights of the present fresh-'
man English program, Ken-i
neth Forward was honored. I
The son of a Baptist minis-'
ter, born in New York state,
lived his boyhood in Colorado,
was educated in New England
and spent his teaching career
in Nebraska will retire July 1.
Dr. Forward commented on
the remarkable change in the
appearance of the University,
but as English goes he has
seen little change in the enter
ing freshman students.
During his career, the use
of placement tests was begun
in the University to place stu
dents in various levels- of Eng
lish instruction. Prior to this,
students were grouped ac
cording to the amount of
English they had in high
school. But then it was found,
according to Dr. Forward,
that high schools were glvirf,
students English credit for;
being business managers of
their high school newspapers.
Dr. Forward served as di-'
rector of the Freshman Eng
lish program from 1946 to 1956 j
and it was during this period,
according to his colleagues,
that order was brought out of
ground text for correction
work are the two major ob
jectives of a new book writ
ten by three University of
Nebraska professors.
"Speech Development, Im
provement, and Correction,"
"by Profs. Lucile Cypreansen,
John H. Wiley and LeRoy T.
Laase, is a non-technical,
though well documented,
work designed to fulfill both
purposes. It is the outgrowth
of many years of practical
experience by Dr. Cyprean
son in the Unversity's speech
and hearing laboratories.
Duo Purpose
With its publication, a text
is available for the first time
both for the student planning,
to teach in elementary
grades and the, student who
may become a speech ther
apist. The book does not intend to
make therapists out of teach
ers, the authors explain, but
rather to enable them to
play a greater part in a
child's speech development. I
uui io qo mis, iney aaa, me
teacher must know when to
use the development methods
and how. Most books on
speech development and
correction, they explain, are
too technical for the average
elementary teacher.
Dr. Cypreansen is super
visor of the University's
Speech and Hearing labora
tories and associate profes
sor of speech and speech cor
rection. Dr. Wiley, associate
professor of speech patholo
gy, is director of the labora
tories, and Dr. Laase, pro
fessor of speech and speech
pathology, is chairman of the
department of speech.
The book was published by
the Ronald Press Co. of New
York City.
