Essays into literacy: selected papers and some afterthoughts
This volume contains a number of Frank Smith's classic papers and others from sources not always easily accessible. It also contains some "Afterthoughts" in which he responds candidly to the questions and challenges he most frequently receives. They include, "Why are you so rude about teachers?," "What you say is impossible," "How can you teach a child who isn't interested?," "How will children learn if they are not continually corrected?," and "What would your ideal school be like?"
