Mirhosseini, Seyyed-Abdolhamid; Kianfar, Roya – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
Decades of theorisation and research on the teaching and learning of second-language writing have hardly created coherent theoretically profound and practically relevant understandings of writing instruction. This article discusses the possibilities and insights created by bringing personal meaningfulness into the realm of writing pedagogy.…

Wheatley, Lance – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
How might English classrooms be spaces where Muslim students are empowered to recognise and resist Islamophobia?

Obano, Nisha – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
This essay emerges from my position as a new trainee teacher, entering my first school, a school as unique and also as typical as any. What struck me was the complexity of the school's culture (and counter-cultures). Language was revealed as a site of resistance, a clash between staff and pupils at the point of instruction; a reluctance to read or…

Breen, Lisa; Illesca, Bella; Doecke, Brenton – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
This essay presents an English teacher's inquiry into her professional practice in an institutional setting that is heavily regulated by standards-based reforms.

Green, David – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
Given that research in language and literacy studies proffers multilingual and translingual literacy studies as central to contemporary English studies, English studies can benefit from increased attention to hip-hop language practices. While some linguists have argued for closer analysis of hip-hop nation language (HHNL) because of its relevance…

Wolfsdorf, Adam – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
Trigger warnings are posing serious threats to the ways that English educators can teach at the university level. If Aristotle--and Hillis-Miller years later--argue that literature must arouse and bring about catharsis, then proponents of trigger warnings are anaesthetising the power of words and watering down their ability to incite emotional…

My starting point is "Staying Power", an exhibition that aimed to increase the number of photographs representing Black British experience in the UK. The exhibition was recommended by a former pre-service/PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) student who had grown curious about the language and culture of her students. One…

Doecke, Brenton – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016
This essay unfolds through a series of juxtapositions, involving storytelling and writing of a more analytical nature.

Among educators in the field of language and literature, in the German-speaking world and beyond, the concept of "competence" has been gaining ground for three decades.

Bali, Reetu – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
This essay explores what the development of writing might look like and how it might take shape in a secondary English classroom. The study problematises current definitions of progress.

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.
