Tour, Ekaterina – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
Digital technologies are increasingly used by children and adults in their everyday lives and these practices have attracted researchers' and practitioners' attention. However, everyday digital literacy practices are difficult to examine. They require appropriate research methods and visual methods have potential here. Although some visual methods…

This article offers a case study account of a garden-themed poetry writing project run by a creative writing organisation in partnership with a class of 9-10-year-old children from a London primary school. I explore the concept of creativity which framed the five-week project and analyse the different ways in which the creative practitioner worked…

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'…

Barrs, Myra – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
This article introduces the new translation by Stanley Mitchell of a very well-known Vygotskyan text, which has become the locus classicus for Vygotsky's concept of the "zone of proximal development" (ZPD). It outlines the history of Vygotsky's text and compares Mitchell's new translation with the version found in Chapter 6 of "Mind…

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…

Bayley, Nicholas – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016
In this paper I introduce some concepts from psychoanalysis, a poem, a clinical vignette and a personal anecdote. I am asking what light the knowledge of unconscious processes can throw on the memorisation of poems and therefore what use to the individual can be derived from learning poems by heart. A version of the paper was first given at the…

Riddell, Patricia – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016
Fox argues that the poetic function of language fulfils the human need to symbolise. Metaphor, simile and analogy provide examples of the ways in which symbolic language can be used creatively. The neural representations of these processes therefore provide a means to determine the neurological basis of creative language. Neuro-imaging has…

Rumbold, Kate; Simecek, Karen – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016
In universities, as in mainstream education more widely, cognitive approaches to poetry are often dominant. Far from being irrelevant to the serious study of literature, we argue that eliciting students' affective responses to poetry can deepen their cognitive understanding and analytical skills. Drawing on recent research in psychology on the…

Hardcastle, John – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016
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…

Lee, Klaudia Hiu Yen; Patkin, John – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016
This article uses the findings from an empirical study on Hong Kong students' reading practices as collected through face-to-face interviews on major university campuses in Hong Kong to argue for the importance of "affective" and "imaginative" engagement with literary texts if students are to develop an interest in reading.…

Brady, Monica – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016
This is a different essay from the one I set out to write. When I began, I had in mind a picture of my development as a teacher that was linear. I saw myself as a committed and enthusiastic teacher whose understanding about the nature of learning had developed over time. I had a theory that as a young teacher I was focused on content, on the idea…

Tarpey, Paul – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016
This article explores how circumstances in different conjunctures influence the types of narrative, working practice and "Professional Memory" that English teachers construct. It is argued that the circumstances in which teachers begin their careers help to formulate attitudes, values and missions that remain potent over long periods.…

van de Ven, Piet-Hein – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016
In my contribution I give an account of my teaching based on my own memories and those of former students. I rely on reports from my present students, remarks by colleagues and my own reflections. My memories as well as my present reflections are doubtlessly coloured by my growing awareness of the relationships between micro and macro levels of…
