Driver, Duncan – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
English teachers select texts for the edifying qualities they possess: a good poem, novel or film can act both as a window looking out over different lives and as a powerful mirror for reflection.

Kiss, Tamas; Mizusawa, Ken – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018

Shelby-Caffey, Crystal; Byfield, Lavern; Solbrig, Stephanie – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
If an educator is to take a critical stance, teach students to do the same, and design lessons that engage students in thoughtful discussions and actions surrounding issues of social justice, then discussions of politics, race, culture, economics and systems of power are crucial to this work, and the use of hip-hop is a worthwhile endeavour. In…

Schupak, Esther B. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
Although performance-based pedagogy has clearly given new life to the study of Shakespeare, with 'performance' or 'active' approaches becoming increasingly dominant as a method, acquiring the status of "the" 'proper' way to teach Shakespeare, it is important to examine the limitations of this method. This article will begin by surveying…
