Philp, Hannah – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
This article looks at the ways in which the semiotics of authority are established and challenged during a secondary school English lesson on "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde".

Newell, Sarah – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
This essay explores the role of talk within the English classroom. Classroom talk (in its various forms) is not simply a method for sharing fixed systems of knowledge or information; it is the most useful mechanism for giving learners the space to develop new meanings and new ways of thinking about their surroundings. As soon as learners are…

Shelby-Caffey, Crystal; Byfield, Lavern; Solbrig, Stephanie – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
If an educator is to take a critical stance, teach students to do the same, and design lessons that engage students in thoughtful discussions and actions surrounding issues of social justice, then discussions of politics, race, culture, economics and systems of power are crucial to this work, and the use of hip-hop is a worthwhile endeavour.

Schupak, Esther B. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018

This article will begin by surveying…
