Classroom, Curriculum and Context - APPL923

This unit is about language teaching and learning and focuses on internal and external social factors which influence both curriculum and classroom practice. The focus of the unit moves from consideration of individuals in a teaching-learning context, to the classroom as a site of learning and generation of a unique discourse, and then to the influence and impact of broader social and political concerns on curriculum and on all participants in the process. Factors that bring about and impede change are examined and their impact evaluated across a spectrum of learning environments. The focus is on TESOL but teachers of other languages will also find this unit relevant to their professional practice.
