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.

Wolfsdorf, Adam; Scott, Alison; Herzog, Sarah – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
The controversy surrounding trigger warnings has highlighted a mystifying confound in post-secondary education. Faculty, students and school bureaucracies are divided.

Al-Issa, Ali – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
The government of the Sultanate of Oman actively promotes the value of English as a global "lingua franca" to support modernization and national economic growth.

Rushek, Kelli A. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
HBO's "The Wire" (2002-2008) is often regarded as one of the best television shows ever aired. Through reiterative viewings and a critical content analysis of the show, I argue that "The Wire" should be used as an anchor text in preservice English education courses in order to foster cosmopolitan literacies in preservice…

Hamamra, Bilal Tawfiq – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
In addition to the methodology of new historicism, this article deploys feminism, performance studies and presentism to discuss the effects of the masculine practice of enforced marriage and turning a deaf ear to the female voice in Thomas Middleton's "Women Beware Women" and contemporary Palestine.

Mirhosseini, Seyyed-Abdolhamid; Badri, Narges – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
While English is embraced worldwide as a global means of communication, its teaching and learning is a contested arena of contacts between the so-called English native-speaker culture and local learner cultures. In this study, we investigate Iranian university students' viewpoints on the necessity and justifications for learning English and their…

Dyches, Jeanne; Sams, Brandon L. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
English teaching that satisfies curricula standards has often been siloed from instruction that advances the goals of social justice. Exasperated teachers may feel they can either meet the day-to-day demands of their profession or teach to dismantle social inequities, but not achieve the aims of both approaches. In this reflective practitioner…

Leveraging the aesthetic turn in hip-hop scholarship, this article examines how some of the goal-directed and compositional techniques of DJs can be used to redesign and remix African American literature courses. Specifically, we focus on drops and blends, two moves evident among DJs and turntablists in hip-hop culture. Anchoring our analysis to…

Ng, Chiew Hong – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
In this paper I explore four groups of pre-service teachers' teaching of critical literacy in microteaching to examine how they translated critical literacy into teaching practice for secondary/upper middle grade students (the role played by peers undergoing microteaching).
