The Radical English Class: Student Faces Student in Discourse without Grades.
Winterowd, W. Ross
California English Journal, v7 n2 p27-33 Apr 1971
One of the major goals of the English class is to give the student the sort of experience that will enable him to increase his power over language. Therefore, it is illogical to try to separate oral and written skills in the classroom. Real discourse in the real world results from a real need. In the typical English class, there is no rhetorical situation. A classroom should demonstrate daily that the use of language is a way of understanding, coping with, and changing experience. The English class must become a micro-city, where a great many events are transpiring at the same time. Students must have media available and experiment in using them. (CK)
