Global and National Imaginings: Deparochialising the IBDP English A1 Curriculum
Loh, Chin Ee
Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, v19 n2 p221-235 2012
In this paper, I argue for the deparochialising of the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) English A1 curriculum where teachers as curriculum-makers would critically assess text choice and where students have the opportunities to make critical readings and engage in conversations about issues raised by the text. Through the case study of the implementation of one English A1 curriculum in a Singapore school, I demonstrate the possibilities for a cosmopolitan literature curriculum that is attentive to both the global and the local.
