I Do Whole Language on Fridays.
Strickland, Kathleen; Strickland, James
English Journal, v85 n2 p17-25 Feb 1996
Maintains that whole language is not a prescriptive approach but a philosophy oriented toward student needs, inquiry, interaction, and, generally, "transaction" over "transmission." Discusses how a teacher becomes a whole language teacher, some of the difficulties of incorporating whole language into traditional curriculums, and the prospects for whole language on the secondary level.
