"Serious" Learning: Language Lost.
Fu, Danling; Townsend, Jane S.
Language Arts, v76 n5 p404-11 May 1999
Compares the learning and writing experiences of a child during his kindergarten year (with frequent immersion in reading and writing activities in their writing workshop) to his first-grade year (with worksheets and decontextualized exercises). Critically examines such "serious" literacy learning that lacks a real audience and a real purpose for students. (SR)
