Paré, Anthony – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
James Moffett is revered by many for his contributions to English education, but his interest in discourse and rhetoric led him beyond reform in the language arts curriculum to a vision of a radically reconceived approach to education, one in which disciplinary knowledge is subordinate to the processes of symbolic representation that creates that…

Beavis, Catherine – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
Both James Britton and James Moffett were keynote speakers at the Sydney International Federation for the Teaching of English conference in 1980--a fact reflective of the wide recognition and acceptance of their work and influence throughout Australia by that time. In Victoria, Moffett's writings became known initially through teacher education,…

Sawyer, Wayne – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
James Moffett's influence in Australia is shown here manifested in a particular Syllabus for Years 7-10 from the 1970s. Moffett is discussed in terms of the totalising nature of the theory presented in "Teaching the Universe of Discourse" and it is argued that not only the details of Moffett's theory, but also its totalising nature were…

Green, Bill – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
Re-reading James Moffett's work in the light of more recent scholarship in the humanities and social sciences, this paper presents a "deconstructive" account of Moffett's key texts. Understanding them as instances in themselves of rhetoric and textuality, and reading them at once "with" and "against" the grain, the…

Dixon, John – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
James Moffett's structuralist impulse to carve the "universe of discourse" into four related levels--drama, narrative, exposition, argumentation--was quickly reframed as a rough approximation, as he recognised the ways myth and fictions compressed several layers, and even everyday narratives potentially encapsulated some of the rest.…

Schieble, Melissa B. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
In this article, the author challenges English teachers of literature to examine applications of reader response theory in teaching reading which posit that readers approach a text from two stances: "aesthetic" (emotional) or "efferent" (literal). The essay presents a case study of pre-service English teachers and adolescents'…

Burgess, Tony; Ellis, Viv; Roberts, Sarah – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
James Moffett's "Teaching the Universe of Discourse" set out an agenda for the study of development in writing, which influenced James Britton's work in the UK. Subsequently, however, the work of both these thinkers was largely set aside in the approach to writing taken by national strategies in England. In this article, we trace the…

Mayher, John – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2010
James Moffett's "Storm in the Mountains: A Case Study of Censorship, Conflict, and Consciousness" remains as relevant today as it was when it was published in 1988 for those who want to understand the nature and sources of contemporary conflicts in American language and literacy education. Censors continue to try to restrict student…
