AM I losing the plot? I went into a respected high-street bookseller recently to browse through the education books. I could find a science section, a maths section and sections for history, geography and modern languages; but the shelves where the English section used to be were populated by series after series of books on grammar teaching and how to teach for national tests. I looked in vain for a book that would help me do what I love doing best: teaching English.
Furthermore; is it just that I have become something of a dinosaur or was the recent English section in the Friday magazine dominated by articles and reviews of books to do with grammar and knowledge about language: where has my subject gone? Can anybody out there help me find it, please?
