Good dreamsbad dreams: Text selection and censorship in Australia
journal contributionposted on 1999-01-01, 00:00 authored by Brenton DoeckeBrenton Doecke, T Hayes
This essay looks at recent debates about text selection and censorship in Australia. Our aim is to point beyond the terms in which the censorship debate has been conducted in the mass media, and to prompt reflection on how texts are used in English classrooms. We shall raise questions of language and cultural identity in secondary English teaching, arguing the need for a culturally inclusive curriculum that is responsive to the attitudes and values of secondary school students. © 1999 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
