John Fanselow is well known for his extraordinary and inspiring 1987 book Breaking Rules: Generating and Exploring Alternatives in Language Teaching. The article here is a reflection celebrating more than 25 years since publication. John writes about positive and negative reaction to the “breaking rules” idea. John feels, as we do, that there is much in common between his Breaking Rules proposals and the ideas behind Demand High.
We are pleased to include John’s article here, with his permission.
