Introduction (The Teacher's Use of Texts)

by Philip W. Jackson - 1989

This section deals with the way texts of various kinds are used and might be used in classrooms. It extends the notion of texts to include not only conventional written materials but also physical objects, such as paintings and sculpture, as well as the kind of information transmitted by computers and video cassettes. It is addressed to both practitioners and researchers but the emphasis throughout is on practice. By revealing gaps in our knowledge it points the way to future research.
