This is book number 213 in the Counterpoints series.


This book explores how postcolonialism and the ongoing debates over the literary canon relate to the practice of teaching high school English. This literary journey begins in apartheid South Africa and then moves forward in time and place to a multi-ethnic Western Canadian school where Ingrid Johnston and an English teacher collaborate in teaching postcolonial literature. Illuminating ways in which a postcolonial pedagogy can open up debates on questions of power, difference and discrimination, this book highlights the complexities of postcolonial pedagogy and raises challenging questions of text selection, reading strategies and student response.
