This article discusses two schemes for teaching writing in schools.

Diamond, Fleur; Bulfin, Scott – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021
The growing interest in the history of curriculum and pedagogy in subject English might be seen as a response to educational reforms that are replacing earlier, progressive understandings of subject English with narrowly technical understandings of teacher professional knowledge and practice. This essay emerges out of an intergenerational,…

Wescott, Stephanie – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021
Post-truthism entered mainstream consciousness after being named "Oxford Dictionary's" word of the year in 2016, denoting a turn in the Western relationship with truth as a certain and indisputable object. Simultaneously, and paradoxically, rising distrust around teachers' professional judgement and a desire for certainty in practice saw…

Ali, Zahra – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021
One of the consequences of globalisation in recent years has been the unprecedented spread of English as the world's lingua franca. This has particular resonance in postcolonial countries, such as Pakistan and Australia, whose histories have been strongly shaped by English colonisers in contrasting ways. Written from the perspective of someone who…

Canale, Germán; Furtado, Victoria – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021
Long-ingrained views of EFL teaching foreground grammar and language skills as the main goal of learning, backgrounding how the language classroom and materials contribute to (social) knowledge construction.

Shann, Steve; Macken-Horarik, Mary; Edwards, CeCe – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021
What do we see when we observe an excellent English lesson? What's going on in the room? Perhaps what stands out is a collaborative making of meanings inspired by stimulating texts. Perhaps what's most important is an ever-deepening knowledge about, and facility with, the many ways that language works. Maybe what we're seeing is a carefully…

Petrosky, Anthony; Mihalakis, Vivian – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2021
Knowledge and practice refuse to be disconnected from contexts. They always already occupy historical spaces both cultural and personal. Those spaces intersect with lines of inquiry.
