Abstract

This article discusses the approaches that have been adopted by teachers in classrooms in Trinidad and Tobago, which reflect a transmission or, at best, a transaction ideology. Although the transaction model is seen as a step in the right direction, it is suggested that this model does not provide an orientation towards "empowerment" and "informed responsible action." Instead, the transformation method, which asserts that students should learn to see relationships between themselves and their social environment and between themselves and all aspects of the curriculum, is recommended as an alternative pedagogical strategy for schools in Trinidad and Tobago
