An Examination of Language Teachers' Enactment of Curriculum Materials in the Context of a Centralised Curriculum
Li, Zhan; Harfitt, Gary James
Pedagogy, Culture and Society, v25 n3 p403-416 2017
This paper examines a ubiquitous yet under-studied area of language pedagogy, namely materials usage. It explores teachers' enactment of curriculum materials by focusing on English language education (ELE) teachers' use of prescribed textbooks to plan and deliver lessons at the tertiary level in Mainland China. A qualitative multi-case study involving three Chinese ELE teachers represents the design for this study. The interactive patterns of teachers' enactment at the pre-lesson phase were generated along with four domains of influential factors. The implications for materials development and professional development are also addressed.
