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. This article discusses the possibilities and insights created by bringing personal meaningfulness into the realm of writing pedagogy.…

This article records and evaluates a student's learning journey in two modules on an MA (Education) English Language Teaching (ELT) programme: an Oracy and ELT Pedagogy module and an Educational Technologies module.

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. While trigger warning proponents emphasise the value of protecting students with trauma histories from unscaffolded exposure to content related to sexuality, violence, race and…

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. This policy, however, creates difficulties for many teachers, who find themselves implementing certain practices that conflict with a vision of English language teaching (ELT)…

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…

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…

This article presents a study of prospective teachers' writing about service-learning experiences.

Jennings, Kyesha; Petchauer, Emery – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
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). Firstly I discuss some key concepts and outline the pedagogical framework…

Pang, Hanzhou – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
This study attempts to explore the issue of intercultural and transnational negotiation in written English communication. I am interested in the reciprocal development of written discourse across cultural boundaries. My analysis focuses on academic writers' sense of self and their individual ability to reach otherness when they share the roles of…

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…

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.…

Wyatt, Mark; Constantino, Dorothy; Cox, Corinne; Gilkes, Kristy; Thompson, Serena; Tiller, Rachael – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016
Though there is little in the literature on the teaching of the history of English, criticism of textbooks which over-simplify "the" story as the rise of the standard variety has been more vocal of late. Meanwhile, some academics have argued for focusing teaching on the analysis of texts. This article reports on a unit/module taught at a…
