Medway, Peter – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
English is best advanced by being relocated within the central aims of education, which in turn need to be drawn from Enlightenment values. Central among the latter is knowledge. The article argues that the least obviously "factual" side of English--novels and poetry--contributes to knowledge in direct and indirect ways. These include…

Jones, Ken – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
The article traces some lines of connection between teachers' efforts to reshape the way that teaching and learning are done in local settings, and larger-scale shifts and tensions in education policy.

Pollard, Velma – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
Writers of Caribbean ancestry who live outside of the region are usually described as having dual allegiance (Caribbean/American for example). This is eminently justifiable, since there is usually a recognizable Caribbean flavour to the writing. This paper focuses on one feature of Caribbean culture incorporated in three texts: "Praisesong…

Spector, Karen – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
This article is based upon a larger study that considered three high school literature units in the US. Through a close analysis of one classroom discussion between a teacher and a provocative 8th grade student named Fish, I argue that it is not only ethically responsible to position the Fishes of this world as laudable, but that doing so is…

Tolan, Jim – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
The world of contemporary poetry can be extremely polarised, most obviously between the so-called page poets, who are often academically trained in creative writing programmes, and the so-called stage poets, who are performers as well as poets and, even if they were so inclined, would be hard pressed to find a college or university where they…

Fairlie, Charlotte – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
In a small Midwestern liberal arts college, a class focusing on "Farming and Rural Life in Literature" attracted a large number of agriculture students. Although many disliked and avoided reading, these students began to use literature as a way to understand the natural world, their role in it and the experiences they shared with other…

Andrews, Richard – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
This examination of Moffett's contribution to a theory of school English concentrates on his understanding of rhetoric. It is suggested that the impetus for "Teaching the Universe of Discourse" is dialectical: he was running against currents in English teaching at the time that were literary and technical, as well as the specific…

Gustar, Jennifer J. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
Zadie Smith's "White Teeth" argues that we can take responsibility for the future if we refuse to act in thrall to the legacies of the past, which favour one human life over another, and act instead with the conviction that all lives are "lives" (Judith Butler). "White Teeth" examines the colonial legacy of violence…

Lockett, Michael – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
This paper explores the relationship between New Critical close reading techniques and studies of literary engagement by building on the work of Sumara, Rosenblatt and Todorov. New Critical techniques responded to the allusive density and terseness of modernist poetry and fiction. In the half-century since, the situated approaches favoured by…

This article explores language and literacy teachers' classroom experiences in a digital age.

The teachers were…

Sung, Chit Cheung Matthew – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010

I shall discuss the difficulties in using "pure" English and "pure" Chinese in my daily life, as well as exploring the…
