The Ecology Of The English Language Classroom In Jamaica

Publication Date: 
December 2002

This paper discusses the ecology of the Jamaican English language classroom based on data drawn from an English language class-size survey and a subsequent ethnographic study of a number of English language classrooms. Situating class size considerations within the broader framework of classroom ecology, the paper reviews the extensive literature on class size and then explores how key elements of the language-external ecology affect the quality of the teaching learning interaction in English language classrooms.
