Editorial Reviews

In light of rapid and radical changes in the American workplace, urges teachers to adopt an expansion of traditional notions of English but also maintain a commitment to a strong liberal arts foundation and humanistic goals. Seeks the best fit between what schools have traditionally taught and the kinds of skills and abilities currently being sought by employers in various workplaces. The perspectives include working English for 21st- century schools and colleges, training and communicating in the nuclear power industry, creating partnerships for literacy in the college workplace, and exemplary coalitions between businesses and schools.
