Quality Teaching and Learning

Challenging Orthodoxies


Wendy Crebbin

This book provides a comprehensive analysis and critique of many key issues being addressed in schools and school systems in a variety of countries. Using the postmodern approach of recognizing multiple meanings and interpretations, Quality Teaching and Learning provides readers with a framework in which they can examine some of the «commonsense» reasoning behind many school practices and teaching and learning approaches. Working from these understandings, readers are enabled to look beyond current orthodoxies and recognize the advantages and disadvantages – along with many of the contradictions – that exist within and between the multiple expectations being placed on schools.
