[Xmca-l] Re: Teaching in social context



By the way, I recently was given permission to work with the school...so I am looking to test my mismatch of linguistic structure and social class function hypothesis with my wife's school and three others in the area.

Seems like the grumpy quality of the narrative is being picked up on, but
hard to tell.

*The Secret Garden* is antiquarian by American standards, having appeared
in the latter part of the 1900's. I note there is a modern TV series about
it.

Paul - Would it be permissible to incorporate some of the TV, so the kids
get a richer interpretive object and mix it with reading?
