Issues in Teaching English Language and Literature

The year 2020 represents a watershed year in world history. The world has experienced the uncertainty of the pandemic in varying ways and contexts. Each individual, profession and area of study has responded differently to the pandemic. Now the time has arrived to reflect and take a stock of the status of the teaching of English language and literature. Sharing our experiences will help bring to the table our takeaways on how to adapt and work together to overcome physical and mental restrictions and to build new ways of teaching and learning. ‘The New Education policy 2020’ too envisions change, necessitating a major paradigm shift in the education system. There is an urgent need to deliberate on these immediate concerns. This issue of Fortell will address these concerns   and their impact on education, language and literature teaching.

  1. Empowering teachers for the digital classroom teaching

  5. Incorporating  teachers voice in curricular change
