the English Literary Interface in Senior school
There has been a protracted struggle in Queensland about how to configure the relationship between language, literacy and textual studies in the senior syllabus for English. Debate has centred on the locus of curriculum control rather than curriculum change. The author offers a perspective on this English crisis and proposes that if English is to have currency and connectedness an entirely new curriculum and cultural formation is needed.
