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…

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.

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.
