The Martin Report: What Goes on in English Lessons. Case Studies from Government High Schools, Western Australia.
Martin, Nancy; And Others
Noting that since 1979, the English course in Western Australian secondary schools has been reshaped into two separate courses--one for college admission and one in English literature--and that procedures for student assessment and examination have altered considerably, this volume reports on an extensive survey undertaken to discover how these changes have affected the teaching and learning of English in the Western Australian secondary schools. Following a brief section describing the basis and design of the study, the first major part of the document discusses the background and issues of secondary English education in the Western Australian schools. Part two discusses case studies of English courses conducted in nine high schools, while part three presents the findings of these studies, including conclusions and recommendations. Appendixes include the letter sent to the principals of the case study schools and questions from teacher, student, and parent interview forms. (HTH)
