Images of post-16 English teaching

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper draws on two empirical studies investigating methods of teaching and learning in the post-16 curriculum in England consisting of two subjects: English literature and the more recent arrival of English language. The findings of both studies suggest that teachers do not vary their teaching styles when teaching the two English subjects at the post-16 level as many commentators argue. Possible explanations as to the causes of the findings of the studies are explored together with their wider implications for the inservice and initial education of teachers.
