The State of English Education: Considering Possibilities in Troubled Times
Hawthorne, Shaun; Goodwyn, Andy; George, Marshall; Reid, Louann; Shoffner, Melanie
English Education, v44 n3 p288-311 Apr 2012
For the "Extending the Conversation" section in this issue, the authors invited English educators from the United States and abroad to reflect on the state of English education in their countries. All five contributors have interacted through their participation in the NCTE Annual Convention, the CEE summer summits, the International Federation for the Teaching of English (IFTE) convention, and the NATE conference. They begin with initial thoughts by Shaun Hawthorne, the Deputy Principal at Western Springs College in Auckland, New Zealand; and Andy Goodwyn, a faculty member at the University of Reading in England. Then, Marshall George (Fordham University), Louann Reid (Colorado State University), and Melanie Shoffner (Purdue University) offer a "trialogue" in response. They hope these perspectives give readers insight into international contexts and advance dialogue in English education.
