Exploring Intercultural and Ethical Understanding through "Ethical Intelligence" and Drama in Asian Texts for the "Australian Curriculum: English"
Jetnikoff, Anita
English in Australia, v48 n2 p45-54 Sep 2013
This paper focuses on Australian texts with Asian representations, which will be discussed in terms of Ethical Intelligence (Weinstein, 2011) explored through drama. This approach aligns with the architecture of the "Australian Curriculum: English" (AC:E, v5, 2013), in particular the general capabilities of "ethical understanding" and "intercultural understandings." It also addresses one aspect of the Cross Curriculum Priorities which is to include texts about peoples from Asia. The selected texts not only show the struggles undergone by the authors and protagonists, but also the positive contributions that diverse writers from Asian and Middle Eastern countries have made to Australia.
