Ever wonder about the development of the education curriculum?
You probably have; perhaps not in so many words, but the question of what our children are learning in school is a hot topic for most parents, not to mention teachers and the children themselves. And just about everybody will tell you, often without even being asked, what they think of the English language–the good, the bad, and the ugly!
200 Years of Grammar
This book, which attempts to treat an academic subject with some levity and humour, provides a study of Canadian grammar instruction, with supplemental examples from New Zealand and Australia, to give teachers, students and those interested in the English language an engaging history of the teaching methods used, from the introduction of state curriculum through to the 21st century.
