Recapturing the Past or Inventing the Future?

The Influence of Time and Culture on Learning to Write
John Sylvester Lofty - Author

"In the world of language education, there emerge few books that have an immediate and telling message--books that startle by the very simplicity and obviousness of what they say. John Lofty has given us just such a volume. One could see the book as another 'critical' attack on schools as they are presently constituted; like Shaughnessy and Heath, Lofty is above that easy answer, and like them he writes out of love for all those he describes. A...(Read More)
