Description

In this chapter the author engages with paragraph scholarship and theorizing in the 1960s. This period witnessed a significant shift away from a number of the assumptions held by late 19th century scholars, in addition to the adoption of a number of new perspectives and ways of thinking about the paragraph and paragraphing. The contributions of four scholars (Alton Becker, Francis Christensen, John Lord, and Paul Rodgers) are examined in detail, and the impact of their work on later pedagogical practice is discussed.
