Topic: Writing and Literature in English Class

Question: How much time is spent in English class on writing and literature?

Answer: “Found that the teacher of the traditional English class spent 57% of the observed time on literature and 16% on composition.” HM Pipman. 1984. P. 185.

Comment: Not a surprise. That was 1984. I wonder if the same percentages hold today? I bet they do. RayS.
