A Comparative Study of the Educational Stances of Madeline Hunter and James Britton. Concept Paper No. 6.
Steiner, Joan Naomi
In this paper, the educational stances of Madeline Hunter and James Britton are revealed through metaphorical concepts evident in their texts. After an introductory chapter which serves as a statement of purpose, the second and third chapters compare Hunter's and Britton's metaphors for learning, curriculum development, teacher and student roles, and academic decision making. The fourth chapter of the paper traces the metaphors to sources. The last chapter compares the social and political implications of each stance in light of classroom dynamics, teaching, and language learning. Three figures illustrating aspects of their metaphors are included; 112 references and an appendix comparing Hunter's and Britton's educational stances are attached. (RS)
