Teaching English : some remarks on the emergence of the sympathetic teacher in the English classroom
Patterson, Annette J. (2011) Teaching English : some remarks on the emergence of the sympathetic teacher in the English classroom. In Doecke, Brenton, McLean Davies, Larissa, & Mead, Philip (Eds.) Teaching Australian Literature: from classroom conversations to national imaginings. Wakefield Press in association with The Australian Association for the Teaching of English, Kent Town, South Australia, pp. 319-332.
The chapter explores the concept of the teacher-student relationship within the English classroom and proposes that this relationship has a specific purpose in building a civil society by inculcating practices of self-reflection, empathy and ethics. The topic is explored through the example of teaching Australian literature, specifically, Tim Winton’s Lockie Leonard, Human Torpedo to secondary school students. Ian Hunter’s work on literature education and the construction of socio-ethical practices provides a conceptual framework for the chapter.
