On Bandwagons, Tyranny, and Common Sense.
Clarke, Mark A.
TESOL Quarterly, v16 n4 p437-48 Dec 1982
A brief history of second-language teaching is presented, and a distinction is made between a methodological trend and a bandwagon. It is argued that bandwagons exercise subtle control over professional debates and practices. The possible functions of bandwagons in professional growth are examined. (Author/MSE)
