Teaching beyond Modernism and Postmodernism
Kohn, Sheldon S.
English Journal, v97 n6 p70-74 Jul 2008
High school teacher Sheldon S. Kohn probes the conflicting dynamics that occur for educators who try to provide students with appropriate tools for thinking and living in a postmodernist, intellectual world, yet who must teach in antiquated school systems that support modernist philosophies and hierarchical practices. Kohn imagines students and secondary English moving away from traditional scholarly approaches toward applied humanities made possible by emerging technologies. (Contains 3 notes.)
