Reading the Future
Edition #93 looks forward. The lead article gives voice to the experiences of teachers and leaders working in what we know as modern, innovative or flexible learning environments. New spaces allow for new teaching practices, and curriculum integration is the rising star of the moment, offering radical opportunities for curriculum and assessment design. Champions of this new way of doing school say it’s the future of education.
Ngaire Hoben, Cynthia Orr, Gavin Hood and Robin Holding give us their opinion on the state of English teaching currently. No matter how things change in the classroom, reading will always be our core business. Literacies are the domain of all teachers, of course, but reading takes centre stage only in the English classroom.
