Doubtless to put it so badly is to idealize, but it is an idealization drawn from life. (Armstrong, 1974, p. 56) The guiding principle of this primary school tradition is ‘intellectual exploration’ – a working plan of principles of procedure will be needed to facilitate such exploration together with predictions as to worthwhile activities and useful resources. The American Social Science Curriculum, Man: A Course of Study, on which Bruner acted as consultant goes some way towards defining principles of procedure for an alternative pedagogy: 1 2 To initiate and develop in youngsters a process of question-posing (the inquiry method).
I am arguing that the recurrent failure to involve so many children in classroom learning can be most convincingly explained by fundamental flaws in the transmission model. A pedagogy so firmly situated in the pre-active vacuum can only expect partial success, given the variabilities of interactive reality; no pedagogy so all – dependent on prediction could hope to encompass the diversity of the classroom. Even more disturbingly, the fatal flaws of transmission pedagogy mean that teachers’ expectations inevitably come to fit the partial successes which are transmission’s inevitable achievement: The most wasteful and destructive aspect of our present educational system is the set of expectations about student learning each teacher brings to the beginning of a new course or term.
I should note that I am not here concerned to present evidence as to the quality of my classroom practice: about whether I was a good or bad teacher. My concern is to characterise my evolving view of pedagogic style and orientation and the juxtaposition of personal style and pedagogic style. The argument I wish to make is that this pedagogic orientation and interdependent sense of personal lifestyle is a crucially important consideration in the styles of curriculum, governance and schooling to which one gives allegiance.
