 Organizational Socialization: A Review of the Literature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Prior to 1986, the topic generated little systematic data collection, relied on qualitative work and one-shot, cross-sectional designs and cohort comparisons instead of longitudinal designs, raised questions of generalizability due to the study of limited occupations, focused almost entirely on new employees, and confounded organizational socialization with socialization to work in general.
A common theme throughout the literature was that anxiety plays a significant role in motivating the new employee to adapt to their environment and roles as soon as possible.
Literature prior to 1986 was characterized by studies utilizing stage models for this purpose, but as stated earlier in this paper, these weren’t very effective in terms of describing changes during the newcomer’s transition from outsider to insider or outcomes.

 BBC | British Council teaching English - Literature - Using drama texts in the classroom   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Collie and Slater (1987) focused on the positive contributions language learning through literature could make in that literary texts constituted valuable authentic material as it exposes the learner to different registers, types of language use.
This could be overcome by simplifying them, often leading to a loss of 'literariness' - leading to criticism that the texts became pale imitations of the original writing.
The lack of suitable texts in the traditional body of literature, in my view opens the door for the inclusion of drama in language learning curricula as it tends to use much more naturalistic language than in poems and novels.
