Pradl, Gordon M. – English in Education, 2019
Amid the ongoing tension between an authentic teaching/learning of English and the increasing encroachment of assessments, teachers might gain support for a "meaning-making" approach by dialoguing with an earlier generation of English educators who balanced "skills" and "cultural heritage" with a "personal…

Mc Dermott, Kevin – English in Education, 2019
This article is a reflective account of my work as a writer-in-residence in 12 post-primary schools, over two academic years. Coming from the perspective of a writer the article fills a gap in the literature, where a substantial body of work exists on the teacher as writer, but little exists on the writer as teacher. The article makes a case for…

Gibbons, Simon – English in Education, 2019
The teaching of writing is at the core of the secondary English teacher's work. There have long been contrasting ideas about the most effective approaches to supporting students as writers, and in recent years in England the evidence--from Ofsted, for example--would suggest that it is common for teachers to offer structures to scaffold students'…

Thomas, Helena – English in Education, 2019
The idea that education should value imagination has lost currency over the last few decades and this has implications for teachers as well as pupils. Situated in a system of increased accountability, teachers in England are arguably less able than ever to act on their freedom and to imagine curricular and pedagogical possibilities beyond those…

Barrs, Myra – English in Education, 2019
This article is a critique of current approaches to the teaching and assessment of writing in schools in the UK. Successive government initiatives, most particularly the latest (impoverished) version of the English curriculum, are seen as having led to a situation in which pupils are taught in a way that does not improve the quality of their…

Aharonian, Nikki – English in Education, 2019
Despite the growing body of research into writing for the professional development of teachers, studies exploring writing for the learning of teacher educators are scarce.

Gooda, Theresa – English in Education, 2019
This paper explores the value of writing journals for both students and teachers beyond English lessons and without insistence on evidencing writing progress. Keeping a journal or undertaking regular reflective writing is an unfamiliar experience for some students, and schools may offer limited privacy for writing. Used in a comprehensive school…

Murdoch, Yvette Denise; Hyejung, Lim; Kang, Alin – English in Education, 2018
Prior research has focused on English as the medium of instruction (EMI) classes as a means of increasing language competency and motivation. However, studies have yet to examine the use of students' given names by instructors in EMI classes in Korea. This manuscript investigated EMI classes taught by foreign faculty across several academic fields…

Giovanelli, Marcello; Clark, Billy; Macrae, Andrea – English in Education, 2018
This paper reports on the findings from a survey of academics responsible for undergraduate programmes in English and examines the extent to which they were aware of recent reform of A level English and had made, or are making, changes to their courses as a result. Our findings demonstrate that relatively low numbers felt that they had a strong…

Manley, Stewart – English in Education, 2018
Since 2012, I have been using home-made poetry to supplement my teaching of trust law. My experience illustrates how English -- in this case poetry -- can enhance teaching in other fields. Poetry can capture complex concepts in understandable and memorable ways, provide the human context behind abstract principles and increase authenticity in the…

Merga, Margaret K.; McRae, Michelle; Rutherford, Leonie – English in Education, 2018
Young people's frequency of engagement in reading books for pleasure markedly decreases as they move through the schooling years, reducing their exposure to this beneficial literacy practice. Young people's perceptions of the value of reading can be socially mediated, and positive perception of the value of reading is associated with frequency of…

Reynolds, Todd; Townsend, Bethany – English in Education, 2018
For some teachers, the call for more dialogic instruction and less monologic instruction has led to the belief that student-led discussions require complete teacher silence. That leads to questions about whether there is enough scaffolding for the students when the teacher does not speak; on the other hand, a teacher-centred classroom invokes the…

This article looks at three examples of using language autobiographies in English Education.

The second example looks at how this approach was adapted in the training of secondary English…
