Construction of Learning Community in Ideological and Political Theories Teaching in English Courses

Yuqing Zhang


Nowadays, learning community, as a studying approach, has becoming more and more popular in higher education. Its main idea is about student-centered learning which is to let teachers guide the study instead of control it. Compared with the traditional teaching, teachers are more encouraged to change their teaching methods and pay more attention to students in the class. Learning community is a brand-new educational concept, which lays a solid foundation for realizing curriculum ideological and political education. This article studies the construction of learning community in ideological and political theories teaching in English courses. Corresponding viewpoints and measures are also listed combined with English teaching seeking to provide reference by professionals.
