What Are the Language Arts For?
Greene, Maxine
NAMTA Journal, v18 n2 p123-32 Spr 1993
Depicts the isolation which results when education, particularly language arts education, is concerned primarily with the acquisition of skills. Urges educators not to lose sight of the fundamental purpose of the language arts, which are to help people make and articulate meaning from their experiences, to empower people, and to imagine alternative possibilities for themselves.
