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…

Diamond, Fleur; Parr, Graham; Bulfin, Scott – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
Evidence has been accumulating for some time about the impact of standards-based education reforms on schools and schooling, but there has been little research investigating the influence of these reforms on university-based initial teacher education (ITE). This article critically inquiries into the effects of these reforms on an ITE co-teaching…

Yandell, John – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2017
British Conservatives happily acknowledge the debt that they owe to E.D. Hirsch. To understand the nature of their curricular project, and how it is located within the wider goals of education and social policy, we need to attend carefully to the character of this transatlantic borrowing. Its emphases and omissions reveal much about the…

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…

John Yandell's "The Social Construction of Meaning: Reading Literature in Urban Classrooms" provides a powerful counterpoint to current policy discourse in education.

Shah, Mehrunissa – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2014
This essay explores the problematic nature of an enforced monolingual culture promoted by the current Conservative-led UK government. It comments upon the paradoxical nature of the 2014 curriculum that promotes heritage texts and "proper" English, when such poets embraced a Bakhtinian tolerance of languages. It focuses primarily upon the…

Yandell, John – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2013
This essay takes as its starting-point the recent announcement that GCSE English, the high-stakes test taken by 16-year-olds in England, will no longer include the assessment of speaking and listening. It attempts to place this decision, and other recent policy interventions that will have an impact on how talk in the classroom is conceptualised…

Jones, Ken – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2013
The article uses the policies of the English Secretary of State for Education, Michael Gove, to contrast the oddly adventurous character of English Conservatism and the more hesitant positions of those who in some sort oppose it. It suggests that in defence of its own policies, Conservatism edits and co-opts opposing traditions, in the effort to…

Anderson, Gill – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2013
I begin with an account of my own observation of an English lesson taught by one of my student teachers using a teaching resource, "The Island," that I used myself as a new teacher more than 20 years ago and of my own responses on finding it transformed by two decades of change in educational policy and practice. It has become almost a…
