Kiss, Tamas; Mizusawa, Ken – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
Given the multimodal and multicultural character of modern English, English Language Teaching should meaningfully reflect this. Although some attempts have been made, adequate attention has not been paid to reforming writing pedagogy. This paper presents the findings of a two-year research project on writing instruction in the Singapore English…

Bryer, Theo – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
The account of the evolution of a classroom teacher (me) that follows is suggestive of a degree of agency and creativity that is rarely acknowledged. Teachers are currently positioned in ways that underline their instrumental role--their duty to students, parents, school and government to ensure that students achieve. A lack of faith in teachers'…

Vygotsky, Lev S. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
How learning relates to development in children of school age is the most central and fundamental question. Without an answer to this, problems of pedagogical psychology and analysis of the pedagogical process can neither be properly resolved nor even stated. Nevertheless, this question remains the most obscure and unexplained of all the basic…

Roberts, Jenny – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016

By exploring collaborative pedagogical approaches and focussing on my experiences with two students, with widely differing initial capabilities, and exploring how they have…

Burgess, Tony – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
Written nearly 40 years ago, Peter Medway's "Finding a Language" continues to be an arresting read, which offers a powerful vision of what might be possible in education. In this brief introduction, I set the work in context, referring to ideas that Pete engaged with and recalling a little of the times.

Garfath, Toby – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
Dominant and common-sense contemporary conceptions of practice tend to frame the emotional volatility of the classroom--most commonly explored in discussions about student behaviour--as a fundamental obstacle to teaching and learning. The "outstanding" classroom is both orderly and, paradoxically perhaps, characterised by its passionate,…

Craig, Todd – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
Prompted by a moment in the classroom in which the DJ becomes integral for the writing instructor, this article looks at how the hip-hop DJ and hip-hop DJ/Producer become the intrinsic examples for first-year college writing students to think about how they conduct revision in their writing. After a review of two seminal hip-hop books and other…

Pangilinan, J. P. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
In "Finding a Language", Peter Medway addresses questions of central importance to English teaching--questions of curriculum and of pedagogy. How he addresses these questions provides a sharp contrast to the current orthodoxies of a rigidly prescriptive national curriculum and a closely monitored regime of objective-led, skills-based…

Elliott, Victoria – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2014
Automated essay scoring programs are becoming more common and more technically advanced. They provoke strong reactions from both their advocates and their detractors. Arguments tend to fall into two categories: technical and principled. This paper argues that since technical difficulties will be overcome with time, the debate ought to be held in…

Turvey, Anne – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2014
It would be impossible to preface what follows with one of those "disclaimers" that insist "the views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author and do not reflect the views of..." This would not only be disingenuous, it would deny the history that I draw on to make an argument about teaching, learning and…
