Making Fundamental Changes in Education: Is "Whole Language" Feasible?
Wheeler, Garon
TESL Canada Journal, v13 n1 p87-94 Win 1995
Focuses on the history of the whole language approach, which arose out of the ancient notion of teaching as an art rather than a science. The approach is unable to demonstrate its superiority with statistics, a requirement for introducing radical changes in education. The tendency to avoid substantial change in second-language teaching is expected to prevail. (13 references) (Author/CK)
