Whatever Happened to Primary English Knowledge and Understanding?
Beverton, Sue
Evaluation & Research in Education, v15 n3 p128-35 2001
Summarizes in chronological order the main issues that have been considered in defining primary English (elementary school English) in the United Kingdom as a subject. Discusses the English subject knowledge considered necessary, over time, for teachers to know. Concludes that primary English, when compared with other subjects, is a special case: its a nebulous subject long prey to sociopolitical forces. (Author/SLD)
