This essay focuses on my experience studying Stephen Kelman's "Pigeon English" with Year 9 and the complexities of that particular classroom.

Marshall, Bethan; Gibbons, Simon – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
This article considers a conundrum in research methodology; the fact that, in the main, you have to use a social science-based research methodology if you want to look at what goes on in a classroom. This article proposes an alternative arts-based research method instead based on the work of Eisner, and before him Dewey, where one can use the more…

Coultas, Valerie – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
This article uses documentary evidence to review debates on spoken language and learning in the UK over recent decades. It argues that two different models of talk have been at stake: one that wishes to "correct" children's spoken language and another than encourages children to use talk to learn and represent their worlds. The article…

Steedman, Carolyn – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
The sources and motives for children writing are discussed in the context of 1950s Britain. The images and objects that furnish the story-making imagination are related to Charles Lamb's account of looking at old china (teacups and plates) as a child in the 1790s. A focus of this essay is the little-discussed topic of a writer's failure to write…

Loh, Chin Ee – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
Research tells us that reading is correlated to academic achievement but how do we motivate students to read? How can schools build reading cultures?

Through a focused discussion on literature and the reading of texts, this essay explores the cultures and histories students bring into the classroom.

This article has no direct link with academics, children, students or those who teach: I severed almost all such connections several years ago. It describes the rewards and challenges of leading a reminiscence group of elderly people, all of whom suffer some level of memory loss and/or severe physical disability; most are wheelchair-bound. It…
