Gill, Prue – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016
In this teaching memoir, time with a group of Ugandan teachers becomes the "awakening" or spur to leaf through memories of more than 40 years of life in the classroom. The moments chosen to relive afresh tell of practices which have largely been erased in curriculum discussion in Australia. Together they add up to an argument, more…

Parr, Graham; Bulfin, Scott – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
Standards-based education reforms and intensified accountability regimes are now a feature of most countries' agendas to improve the quality of their teaching workforces.
