Johns, Tim; Davies, Florence
Reading in a Foreign Language, v1 n1 p1-19 Mar 1983
An approach to selection of reading materials for classroom use based on experience teaching English as both a first and a second language is outlined. Emphasizes the function of texts as a vehicle for information rather than as a linguistic object, and uses the text's potential value as a prime criterion for selection. Provides framework for classroom interaction. (MSE)
