About the Book

Originally published in 1972.

1900-1970 saw extensive changes in the teaching of English in schools. The volume studies English instruction as it developed at junior and secondary level over this period. Using textbooks, method books, Board and Ministry Reports and other contemporary opinion, the book examines the basic questions arising from this historical survey. Whilst the main emphasis is on changes in actual classroom methods, the volume also examines the wider social pressures which have modified the school system in the UK as well as English as a subject in that system.
