204 pages. A collection of fourteen articles written over the period 1974-1984 by the past President of the Australian Association for the Teaching of English. From a variety of perspectives, the author expounds with insight, forthrightness, and humor his major themes: the power of intention, the importance of practical theories, the value of personal investigations, the shaping power of contexts and structures, the struggle between habit and creation, and importance of action and reflection. This book is addressed particularly to teachers-practicing or prospective-who, like Garth Boomer, are addicted to learning more about the art and science of English teaching, who want to see themselves as reflective students of their own understandings and behaviors, as "action researchers" in their own classrooms.
