Metaphors We (Still) Teach By (?).
Mayher, John S.
English in Australia, n136 p79-84 Aut 2003
Explores a curricular framework for teaching and learning in schools by reconceptualizing the following ideas as a series of metaphors: for the teaching/learning process; for the roles taken by teachers and students; and for the curriculum as a whole. Contends that to return to a sense of what education could be, educators will have to change these metaphors. (PM)
