While much is written about reading aloud to children, and as a teaching tool, far less is known about the oral reading that adults do at home, at work or in the community.

Taylor, Becky; Francis, Becky; Craig, Nicole; Archer, Louise; Hodgen, Jeremy; Mazenod, Anna; Tereshchenko, Antonina; Pepper, David – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Research has consistently shown 'ability' grouping (tracking) to be prey to poor practice, and to perpetuate inequity. A feature of these problems is inequitable and inaccurate practice in allocation to groups or 'tracks'. Yet little research has examined whether such practices might be improved. Here, we examine survey and interview findings from…

Healy, Mary – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Many of the often complex debates central to the topics of belonging and social cohesion have their origins in contrasting interpretations of the ideal relationship between citizens.

Vygotsky considered vraschivaniya, or 'ingrowing', an indispensable stage in the 'internalization' of meaning and described three different ways this could happen. But were these different ways options or substages? By logico-semantic analysis of Vygotsky's notebooks and published texts, and by recontextualizing them historically, I show that what…

In the mid-1920s the poet W. B. Yeats was pleased to discover contemporary philosophers, Giovanni Gentile and A. N.
