Mirhosseini, Seyyed-Abdolhamid; Kianfar, Roya – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019

Manning-Lewis, Tanya – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2019
Caribbean students are repeatedly engaged in rigid forms of writing to meet the requirements of external exams, which often leads to negative attitudes to writing.

Kiss, Tamas; Mizusawa, Ken – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
Given the multimodal and multicultural character of modern English, English Language Teaching should meaningfully reflect this.

Davies, Molly – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
I explore a series of incidents in my English classroom, which occurred while I was preparing my students for their high-stakes GCSE English Language exam ('Paper 2: Writers' viewpoints and perspectives'). I thereby attempt to confront some of my own failings and biases with regard to non-fiction and the teaching of persuasive writing in…

Petrosky, Anthony; Mihalakis, Vivian – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2016
This essay explores Donald Graves' groundbreaking research of the 1980s. We show how Graves' approach to the teaching of writing built on his sensitive appreciation of the ways children actually engage in the composing process when they are given the opportunity to produce writing that is meaningful to them. However, the issue for us is not simply…

Bali, Reetu – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
This essay explores what the development of writing might look like and how it might take shape in a secondary English classroom. The study problematises current definitions of progress. In direct opposition to standards-driven models, I propose an alternative way of thinking about the development of writers through a series of narrative accounts…

Medway, Peter – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
In taking into account the realities of the writing process in the ways teachers organize their classrooms, they inescapably find themselves involved with the notion of student autonomy. Some guidelines for supporting independent-minded adolescents in the classroom suggest themselves, and this article provides other suggestions for planning…

Thomson, Lesley – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2013
Is it possible to teach people to write fiction? A more important and helpful question is: "how" do we teach creative writing? And "who" are the teachers? A published writer is not necessarily qualified to teach creative writing. To helpfully share their declarative knowledge with students, a writer must embrace the art and…

Macaluso, Kati – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2013
Given the Cartesian influence in mainstream American education, writing instruction has come to reflect a dualistic worldview, with the writer understood as an autonomous observer/knower. As such, writing instructors have the potential to convey problematic lessons about the self as entirely separate from┬áthe world. This essay delineates a…
