The Concept of Method, Interested Knowledge, and the Politics of Language Teaching.
Pennycook, Alastair
TESOL Quarterly, v23 n4 p589-618 Dec 1989
Historical analysis and investigation of the current concept of method in second language education leads to the argument that method is a prescriptive concept that articulates a positivist, progressivist, and patriarchal understanding of teaching and helps to maintain inequities between predominantly male academics and female teachers and language classrooms.
