Example text

By referring to learning systems we aim to highlight the fact that teaching does not take place within an isolated arena — what a teacher does in a classroom is affected by social, cultural and political factors. We also aim to remind readers that learning systems are organic and are influenced by and responsive to what takes place within and without them. The purpose of this chapter is to encourage you to consider your belief systems about the process you engage in on behalf of the learners with whom you work.

Did we really say that? Did we really think that? . and did we really mean that? We have shown that we all use stereotypes. Which ones are used by the learning system in which you work? What do they say about the value and status of you as a teacher? What do they say about the value and status of learners? Stereotypes promote explicit and concrete images. They do not promote fluidity of thought. They also convey powerful messages. In the day-to-day experience, and sometimes the stresses, of teaching such messages can be transmitted without questioning.

You would also want a teacher to understand needs you have that are similar or typical of people who have a disability like yours. Again, you would not want your teacher to assume that all people with specific learning disabilities are the same. However, if there was any information available about your disability that might typically require certain teaching approaches, for example the benefits that learners with Down syndrome gain from a high level of visual sequencing, you would want your teacher to find out more about it.
