The English Record, v29 n2 Entire Issue Spr 1978
The articles in this journal reflect the change that has taken place in the study of women's literature and language: women writers are now judged on their own merits, rather than by comparison to men writers. Included are the following: "A Feminist Perspective in the Classroom," a discussion of the ways in which a feminist perspective has enriched the author's own reading and teaching; "Feminine and Feminist Values in a 'High Minded and Spiritual Authoress'," a study of writer Elizabeth Missing Sewell, a didactic novelist and educator of the Victorian period; "FemSpeak, or What Do You Say to a Pregnant Person," a discussion of the relationship between language change and social reform; "Then Nora Slammed the Door," a list of possibilities for a unit on women in the classics; and"Reflections on a Froggy Lawn," a consideration of teaching values in the literature classroom.
