Wilson, Anthony – Education 3-13, 2021
This paper is a re-examination of Louise Rosenblatt's seminal work of reader-response theory, The Reader, The Text, The Poem. I argue that poems are essentially social in nature and that they open up a space in which conversation and interpretation can take place. With Rosenblatt I argue that until a reader engages with a poem, bringing to it a…

Choo, Suzanne S. – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
Recent debates among scholars in Literature education have led to polarizing views about the aims of the subject. The debate reignites ancient quarrels about the aesthetic and political values of literary study and relatedly, the different pedagogical approaches to teaching.

Stabler, Albert – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2021
Sentimentalism as a genre is known for its association with melodramatic 19th-century novels, such as Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin" or Alcott's "Little Women." But, as a cultural tendency, sentimentalism can be found in a range of 19th- and 20th-century cultural, social, and political phenomena, with philanthropic and educational…

This paper argues proper education enfranchises the young through proper relationships to place, past…

Riley, Howard – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2021
Whilst the faculties of literacy and numeracy are rightly recognised as worthy of pedagogical nurturing, this article champions a more venerable articulacy -- "visualcy" -- crucial to a healthy culture, arguing that the one domain of human inquiry which distinguishes the visual arts from other disciplines is surely that surrounding the…

Background: The literature on movement capability critiques the traditional content of physical education (i.e. the what of physical education) and the subject's reliance on teacher-led methods (i.e. the how of physical education).

Krönig, Franz Kasper – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2021
What forms of practices can we observe in music education settings? Is it always music just because there are instruments in the room and some sounds are produced or because we can identify some pieces of a musical work now and then? Or is it because the children are engaged in self-determined activities? Or does the verbalization of behavior in…
