7 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 302 libraries worldwide
This book explores the implications and consequences, both theoretically and practically, of four propositions: (1) discourse is produced in context; (2) discourse is primarily a reaction to a precedent action; (3) social interactions in which language is used to construct reality are performed in a variety of roles; and (4) the features of discourse are shaped by the fundamental roles of the participant and the spectator. The 12 chapters are as follows: (1) Context; a Composing Class; (2) Generative Frame: Actions and Reactions; (3) Generative Frame: Varieties of Textuality; (4) Applications: Syntax as a Notch on the Evolutionary Ladder; (5) Generative Frame: The Possibilities of Narrative; (6) Generative Frame: Being a Participant, Being a Spectator; (7) Applications: Writers as Participants; (8) Applications: Writers as Spectators; (9) Generative Frame: Role; (10) Applications: Student Writers in Role; (11) Generative Frame: Familiarization and Defamiliarization; and (12) Overview: The Shape of the Semester.

Some of the topics touched on in the collection include audiovisual aids, drama in the classroom, English projects and themes, examinations, teaching loads, the teaching of reading, and team teaching.

Part I contains discussions of the nature and purposes of English lessons, the place of literature in education, methods for teaching poetry and exploring language, the importance of oral reading in the English classroom, and the techniques involved in organizing and completing an English project. Part ii examines over 30 possible topics for projects in reading, discussion, and composition--E.G., Outsiders, Christmas, lighthouses, miners, pestilence and famine, and predators. With each topic, guidelines are suggested for subject range, supplementary and oral reading, writing assignments, oral reports, language experiences, and ancillary activities. (Jb)
