Environments for English Learning.
Walen, Harry L.
The various physical environments for the teaching of English include the traditional classroom, the physically open school, schools without walls, and free or alternative schools. Curriculum and organizational strategies include the traditional English curriculum, teacher assignments, grouping, and elective programs. English teachers have a responsibility to understand the total environment--physical, curricular, and organizational--in which they teach and in which young people learn. English teachers should also have a voice in planning new buildings and facilities or renovations of old ones, in developing and introducing curriculum innovations, such as elective programs, and in developing or supporting new options in school organization.
