Douthwaite, Alison – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015

Reid, Mark – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015

Railton, Nikki – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
This essay charts the experiences of a group of Year 10 students studying literature together.

After a review of two seminal hip-hop books and other…

Through a self-examination of her own reading history, the author argues for a dialogic…
