Comments on Ann M. Johns's "Written Argumentation for Real Audiences: Suggestions for Teacher Research and Classroom Practice": A Reader Reacts and the Author Responds.
Jones, Nathan; Johns, Ann M.
TESOL Quarterly, v28 n2 p389-95 Sum 1994
Jones suggests that Johns' article recommending extensive use of real or authentic audiences in English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) or English-as-a-Foreign-Language (EFL) writing has pushed the value of authenticity too far. Johns' notes basic disagreement about some of the things ESL/EFL teachers can and should do and recommends a collaborative, problem-solving environment for students. (Contains 16 references.) (LB)
