International Perspectives on New Models for English Teaching: An Australian View.
Davis, Diana F.
Because of the inadequacy of the three models of English teaching in Australia (the skills, personal growth, and cultural heritage models) in carrying the impact of English instruction beyond its own confines, a new model--the person-process model--is necessary. The model focuses on the individual, but serves to locate individuals in their life context or world. The base spheres represent, in order of the importance with which they impinge on individuals in our society, the spatial/environmental contexts in which they must learn to operate. These overlap and relate to a number of people-oriented contexts in which individuals must interact and transact through listening and speaking, reading and writing. This framework attempts to provide the teacher with an overview of the facets of the individual's world and a perspective on those contexts to which a teacher might properly make a contribution. (EL)
