Bomford, Kate – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
This article takes as its starting-point four moments that occurred in the course of a year of teaching A-level English Literature in an inner-London sixth-form college.

Nichols, Sue; Loh, Chin Ee – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019

Obano, Nisha – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
This essay emerges from my position as a new trainee teacher, entering my first school, a school as unique and also as typical as any. What struck me was the complexity of the school's culture (and counter-cultures). Language was revealed as a site of resistance, a clash between staff and pupils at the point of instruction; a reluctance to read or…

Mirhosseini, Seyyed-Abdolhamid; Badri, Narges – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018

Gill, Prue – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016
In this teaching memoir, time with a group of Ugandan teachers becomes the "awakening" or spur to leaf through memories of more than 40 years of life in the classroom. The moments chosen to relive afresh tell of practices which have largely been erased in curriculum discussion in Australia. Together they add up to an argument, more…
