School Change from the "Bottom-Up": How Real Is the Prospect?
English in Australia, n129-30 p141-49 Dec 2000-Feb 2001
Discusses an attempt by a group of Australian primary and secondary teachers to address the issue of school literacy practices during the transition years (Years 5-8). Suggests attempts to support student learning were both supported and circumscribed by the school context. Notes any notion of professional engagement to bring about lasting change must take such wider contexts into account. (RS)
