Directions in the teaching of English by Denys Thompson( Book )

14 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reviews changes in the teaching of English in British schools during the past 30 years, surveys current practices, and indicates promising developments. Although the contributors write on separate aspects--the purpose of teaching English, the primary school, poetry, teaching the non-literary pupil, prose reading, drama, language, oral communication, upper grade-level English, and the teaching of writing--they share the unified concept of an English discipline which cannot be split vertically into literature and skills, or horizontally between primary and later stages of education. A short glossary and bibliography are provided. Authors of chapters are John Charlesworth, Jerome Hanratty, Michael Marland, Jeremy Mulford, Raymond O'Malley, Christopher Parry, Geoffrey Summerfield, Denys Thompson, J. H. Walsh, Frank Whitehead, and Raymond Wilson. (Jm)
