The NCTE/IRA "Standards": A Surrender.
Zorn, Jeff
English Journal, v86 n1 p83-85 Jan 1997
Suggests that the "Standards for the English Language Arts" (copublished by the National Council of Teachers of English and the International Reading Association) makes good sense about literature and almost none at all about literacy. Argues that for 99% of the school population, the de-emphasis of the "Standards" on formal written communication is "entirely misguided." (RS)
