Free
SKU: cje 29-2-3

In this paper the ‘subjective consciousness’ of ‘Bettina’ (who begins from a place of self-conscious obedience to the edict that teachers should always ‘speak proper English’ and battles cognitive dissonance as she attempts to use the students’ home language, Jamaican Creole as the medium of instruction) is interwoven with the subjective consciousness of students participating in her JC/SJE bilingual project. This dialogue of perspectives exposes some of the complexities of the classroom as socio-linguistic and emotional/psychological space.

SKU: cje 30-1-6

Mathematics is becoming increasingly more important for the growth and development of every society. At the same time, many Jamaicans express disquiet about students' performance in mathematics, and the extent to which they acquire the mathematical skills needed to function, according to Drucker (1997), as ”knowledge workers” and productive citizens. In response, classroom teachers at the secondary level argue that they do not have enough resources to teach mathematics effectively, to achieve the goals and objectives of the curriculum.

SKU: jedic-12-2-4

Recent comments that the school curriculum of Trinidad and Tobago is “culturally irrelevant” prompted this research project. The research was undertaken through a series of focus group discussions with community artists, curriculum officers and public figures interested in education, to explore the following issues:
1. a definition of and justification for the concept of ‘cultural relevance’
2. evidence of its existence or lack of existence in the current school curriculum
3. how it could be promoted in the curriculum and the associated challenges.
