    “What is it about today’s school system that so many find unsatisfactory? Why have generations of reformers failed to improve the educational system, and, indeed, caused it to degenerate further and further into an ever declining level of mediocrity? In this radical and scholarly monograph, out of print for two decades and restored according to the author’s original, Murray N.

  11. elbow 「Being a Writer: A Community of Writers Revisited」 を ¥2,747 で@amazonから出品しました。 日本より発送。丁寧に保管されたのですが、商品の破れ剥がれなどが少しあります。使用感があり。 This is in good condition. No markings, tears, discoloration or fading. Some slightly dog-eared pages, and creases on cover. Slight scuffing at edges of covers. Slight discoloration of textblock. By Peter Elbow et al. I first came across Peter Elbow about 25 years ago in a little book called “Writing without teachers”. I used it a lot, and practised writing using his exercises and suggestions. Good quality stuff, and written with a slightly self-deprecating style that doesn’t take itself too seriously (rare for an academic). Personally, I prefer Ken McCrorie’s style – it’s less academic, more honest, has more of an edge, and is funnier. Tastes differ, obviously. If you’re looking for a textbook to use in class or as a resource for you in your teaching, I recommend this book.

A very useful book for anyone interested in learning more about how Michel Thomas actually taught.
