This subject begins by identifying key issues in English and engages a critical analysis of theories, pedagogies and philosophies associated with the teaching of language, literacy and literature. Individual students will select a key issue and conduct an investigation of relevant theories, pedagogies and philosophy. Individual investigations will be followed by collaborative discussion of findings with peers investigating the same issue, followed by critical analysis of thinking around the issue, culminating in the presentation of conclusions and recommendations for future practice/further research.
