Boerman-Cornell, William; Klanderman, David; Schut, Alexa – Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, 2017
The Harry Potter series is a favorite for out-of-school reading and has been used in school, largely as an object of study in language arts. Using a content analysis to highlight the ways in which J.K. Rowling's work could be used to teach higher dimensionality in math, the authors argues that the content is sufficient in such books to engage the…

Wheeler, Stephanie K. – Business and Professional Communication Quarterly, 2018
Despite the excellent work by scholars who invite us to consider disability, social justice, and business and professional communication pedagogy, little attention has been given to what a disability- and social-justice-centered business and professional communication course might look like in design and implementation. This case study offers an…

This article reports findings from a small-scale focus-group study funded by the British Academy.

Winters, Sarah Fiona – Children's Literature in Education, 2013
This article argues that Harry Potter fan vids can be used in the classroom as works of secondary criticism about J. K. Rowling's primary text. It makes two claims: the first is that vids can be read as criticism of a particular text (in this case Harry Potter) alongside other critical essays on that text; the second is that the practice of…

Wolosky, Shira – Children's Literature in Education, 2014
The formative power of children's literature is both great and suspicious. As a resource of socialization, the construction and experience of children's literature can be seen as modes of disciplinary coercion such as Michel Foucault has anatomized. "Harry Potter", as a "craze" phenomenon, has attracted particular…

Polivanova, K. P.; Sazonova, E. V.; Shakarova, M. A. – Russian Education & Society, 2015
The present article treats changes in the learning environment of contemporary children as exacerbation of the "childhood crisis." We believe that new research in the field of developmental psychology is required in order to apply cultural-historical theory to new data.

Mills, Alice – Children's Literature in Education, 2010
This article considers limitations on agency for characters in the Harry Potter novels, in particular, how far they are driven by an addictive yearning for their beloved dead. As well as Harry's yearning for his dead parents, Dumbledore's guilt, Snape's longing and Slughorn's craving can be read as evidence of addiction rather than love, while the…

Ruwe, Donelle – English Journal, 2013
The American edition of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" has significant changes from the original British version, and every word of a Harry Potter book in translation derives from a translator's decision-making process. Focusing students on British-to-American cultural translation problems in the Harry Potter series encourages…

Faricy-Beredo, Bridget – Public Services Quarterly, 2013
Libraries are constantly challenged to find ways to demonstrate their value to their institutions. Can hosting a National Library of Medicine (NLM) exhibition increase a library's impact?
