Great, No, Realistic Expectations: Grammar and Cognitive Levels.
Hudson, Tate
English Journal, v76 n7 p82-83 Nov 1987
Argues against direct formal grammar instruction in middle school. Notes that even students with high IQ's frequently score low on cognitive development measures, with children in the concrete stage of thinking usually unable to identify simple subjects and verb phrases. Recommends that until students achieve a level of formal reasoning they should do writing, prewriting, revising and experimenting. (JG)
