Burton, Maxine – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2020
Victorian fiction can provide a valuable source of information about society by virtue of its topicality and realistic techniques, influenced by contemporary journalism. In particular, the novels of Charles Dickens and Thomas Hardy throw light on literacy practices, including reading aloud. The higher the literacy levels of the novels' characters,…

Brooks, Greg – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2020
There are many references to reading, and some to writing, in Shakespeare's plays; a list is provided in an Appendix. They are analysed for what they reveal about the social status of literacy in Shakespeare's day, and the references to reading are analysed further according to oral v. silent reading, and whether characters have company on stage,…

Wells, Gordon – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2020
Divergent views on the relative value or status of spoken and written language skills may contribute to a disconnect between lay community members and language professionals, activists, or academics, and conflicted approaches to language support, teaching and/or revitalisation. Taking the bilingual Outer Hebrides as a case study, an online…

Pugh, Jack – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2020
This essay attempts to explore the links between politics, poetry, and collective, embodied readings and discussion in the classroom. When my Year 12 class were asked 'What is Poetry?', their answers suggested something in the Romantic tradition -- of poetry as expressive, individual and emotional. My experience studying poetry with my Year 9…

Jones, Susan; Harvey, Kevin – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2020
In this article, we explore how adults in a community shared reading group discuss the notoriously difficult poem 'The Emperor of Ice-Cream' by the American poet Wallace Stevens. Drawing on Hannah Arendt's notion of action, we explore how participants negotiate the poem, actively constructing meanings from their shared personal experiences rather…

Jarvie, Scott; Beymer, Alecia – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2020
In this study of microteaching in a secondary English methods course, we intentionally stray from normative assessment practice, instead asking pre-service teachers to provide feedback on their peers' microteaching using assessment practices designed to orient them "figuratively." The term 'figurative' refers to 'figurative language':…

Keen, John – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2020
This paper identifies evidence that significant procedural learning can emerge from process approaches to teaching writing, including from the transition of pupils' writing from draft to revision. It shows how writing schemes that use an underlying process framework to structure learning, give pupils ownership of their own writing and exploit the…

Hanratty, Brian – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2020
In evaluating some of Heaney's prose writings about the art of poetry -- what I have called his 'Poetics' -- the paper explores how those ideas could enhance the teaching of poetry in the upper post-primary schools. The paper is divided into four closely interconnected sections. The first section evaluates Heaney's thoughts about the potential…

Shaiman, Jennifer M. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2020
With the anticipated increase in narrative video games entering the English classroom, the particular features of the genre need added attention. One of these features is the stronger perceived relationship between a player and the character than a reader and a character. While this has benefits for effective storytelling, it also creates the…

Neville, Mary L. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2020
This study examines the responses of pre-service teachers (PSTs) to the young adult novel "All American Boys" in light of their viewing the 2016 documentary 13th. In this paper, I use anti-racist English education scholarship to discuss how these two texts helped PSTs 'refuse to start with secondly.' I examine how Adichie's concept of…
