On Tuesday Morning: The Case for "Standards for the English Language Arts."
Brewbaker, James M.
English Journal, v86 n1 p76-82 Jan 1997
Argues that the "Standards for the English Language Arts" (SELA) gives English teachers direction. Discusses what "teaching English" means. Suggests that SELA is not a prescriptive list of measurement items nor a cookbook for skillful English teaching: SELA is a statement of principles of, for, and by professionals, and a K-12 statement of process-centered learning and teaching principles.
