Curriculum Style and English Language: An Investigation into Current Practices in the Teaching of English Language in Australian Schools. ACER Research Monograph No. 19.
Intended for English teachers and administrators involved in curriculum design, this monograph describes the Language Learning Project, an investigation into current school practices in the teaching of English language in the Australian junior secondary school, with particular reference to teaching directed toward the attainment of language competence. Following an introduction to the project, the report is presented in two parts. The first part uses the data from the case study schools to provide an overview of current curriculum practices in the teaching of English language in the junior secondary school. The second part examines the applicability of the concept of curriculum style to English language instruction, and develops a typology of curriculum style based on current practices in the case study schools. The teacher and student instruments used in the study are appended. (HTH)
