Language and Learning in the Humanities. Papers from a Seminar with Humanities Teachers (Essex, England, February, 1975).
Schools Council, London (England).; London Univ. (England). Inst. of Education.
This is one in a series of eight discussion pamphlets produced by the Writing Across the Curriculum Project dealing with some of the issues connected with writing in the schools and their relation to learning. The eight papers in the pamphlet were drawn from a seminar involving 11 geography, history, and English teachers and are concerned with ways of making learning more accessible to more students more of the time. The first two papers deal with ways in which students and teachers might work together more closely, while the following three papers are concerned with geography games in integrated studies and with the language use that such games encourage. The next two papers deal with "opening up" history and with an account of tape recording students as a means of helping them to "relive the past." The final paper suggests that "poetic" writing is important in all subjects and explains why. (FL)
