EML442: Assessment Item 2
Transcript of EML442: Assessment Item 2
“[I]t is the very hybridity of 'English' that makes for its generosity: its capacity to serve a range of purposes and functions, and to allow for a multiplicity of social, cultural and educational effects.” (Bill Green and Phil Cormak, 2008)
The use of English is a changing practice that is constantly evolving to keep up with what is relevant in our world. This is reflected in English study in the classroom. .

My ideal English classroom involves the use of technology, allowing student's to access rich knowledge bases on their own, serving as a facilitator of learning.
Technology that can be used to enhance the English classroom include:
Interactive Whiteboard (IWB)
A practical example
Potential text being studied include: Deadly Unna? Follow the Rabbit Proof Fence? Wolf on the Fold. Touch Me.
The best way to engage students in is to keep the learning environment relevant.
Themes include: Australian studies, cultural, social and gender perspectives Popular and youth cultures
Aspects of environmental and social sustainability

The aim of teaching English through texts is to develop students as users of language. Through critical literacy students are able to develop...
The NSW Curriculum under the National Curriculum status includes in its General Capabilities along with literacy specific skills the importance of students developing ethical understanding, intercultural understanding and personal and social understanding. This is important as these form major aspects of the classroom and texts being studied and through these students are able to relate to 'real world' learning.
