The Teaching of Language in Our Schools: A MacMillan Guidebook for Parents.
Goldstein, Miriam B.
This book describes for parents the effects that recent developments in language study have had on the English curriculum. The discussion covers (1) literacy (language development in small children, spelling, reading, writing, and bilingualism); (2) grammar (structural linguistics, transformational grammar, and the new textbooks); (3) usage (dictionaries, lexicography, linguistic geography, and the history of the language); and (4) courses of study in English, including examples from selected schools.
