The Silent Classroom.
Wrye, Marion
English Journal, v89 n5 p79-83 May 2000
Argues that, under the weight of the culture of materialism, superficiality, and rampant consumerism fueled by sex, drugs, and violence, it is difficult yet critically important for individuals to carve out a space for the pleasures of concentration, and for finding an internal anchor. Describes how a teacher has used silence in support of these goals. (SR)
