Lewkowich, David – English in Education, 2019
This paper details a multimodal practice of response and transmediation, called a Thought Chronicle, which I employ in my undergraduate work with preservice teachers. I position this intervention in relation to the theoretical discourses of multimodality, social semiotics, and psychoanalytic ideas of dreaming and play.

Merga, Margaret Kristin – English in Education, 2019
While librarians in schools often face significant budgetary cuts, they can play an important role in supporting learning in literacy and literature. However, little is known about the practices that they may employ to this end. Of particular interest is the role of librarians in schools in supporting struggling readers, as these students may be…

Mello, Cláudio; Doecke, Brenton; McLean Davies, Larissa; Buzacott, Lucy – English in Education, 2019
This essay begins with vignettes showcasing the pedagogy of three teachers of literature in contrastive settings (one in Brazil, two in Australia). These act as prompts for a transnational dialogue between us that unfolds in our writing of this essay. The aim is not to assess or make judgements about the quality of the teaching presented but to…

Mackey, Margaret – English in Education, 2019
In a time of significant change, it can be useful to explore what remains constant in literate behaviours. This article follows Oatley's suggestion that looking at the psychological function of a literate event is more productive than worrying about the analogue/digital divide. Starting with the activity of learning to read, it investigates…

Pradl, Gordon M. – English in Education, 2019
Amid the ongoing tension between an authentic teaching/learning of English and the increasing encroachment of assessments, teachers might gain support for a "meaning-making" approach by dialoguing with an earlier generation of English educators who balanced "skills" and "cultural heritage" with a "personal…

Mc Dermott, Kevin – English in Education, 2019
This article is a reflective account of my work as a writer-in-residence in 12 post-primary schools, over two academic years. Coming from the perspective of a writer the article fills a gap in the literature, where a substantial body of work exists on the teacher as writer, but little exists on the writer as teacher. The article makes a case for…

Gibbons, Simon – English in Education, 2019
The teaching of writing is at the core of the secondary English teacher's work. There have long been contrasting ideas about the most effective approaches to supporting students as writers, and in recent years in England the evidence--from Ofsted, for example--would suggest that it is common for teachers to offer structures to scaffold students'…

Thomas, Helena – English in Education, 2019
The idea that education should value imagination has lost currency over the last few decades and this has implications for teachers as well as pupils. Situated in a system of increased accountability, teachers in England are arguably less able than ever to act on their freedom and to imagine curricular and pedagogical possibilities beyond those…

Barrs, Myra – English in Education, 2019
This article is a critique of current approaches to the teaching and assessment of writing in schools in the UK. Successive government initiatives, most particularly the latest (impoverished) version of the English curriculum, are seen as having led to a situation in which pupils are taught in a way that does not improve the quality of their…

Aharonian, Nikki – English in Education, 2019
Despite the growing body of research into writing for the professional development of teachers, studies exploring writing for the learning of teacher educators are scarce. This paper offers insight into the rich professional learning which can be experienced by teacher educators when they write and facilitate writing in dialogic learning…

Gooda, Theresa – English in Education, 2019
This paper explores the value of writing journals for both students and teachers beyond English lessons and without insistence on evidencing writing progress. Keeping a journal or undertaking regular reflective writing is an unfamiliar experience for some students, and schools may offer limited privacy for writing. Used in a comprehensive school…

Smith, Lorna – English in Education, 2019
The centenary of the publication of "The Teaching of English in England" provides an opportunity to consider the current National Curriculum for English in England from a historical perspective. This paper reports on a hermeneutic study that explores the humanist values underpinning Newbolt's Report and how they shape the creative…

Manuel, Jacqueline; Carter, Don – English in Education, 2019
In this paper, we examine the ways in which the conceptualisation of literature and literary study encoded in the inaugural secondary school English syllabus in New South Wales (NSW), Australia can be seen to anticipate the conceptualisation so fervently enunciated in "The Teaching of English in England" -- the Newbolt Report of 1921.…

Perry, John – English in Education, 2019
Since its publication in 1921, "The Teaching of English in England," otherwise known as the Newbolt Report, has informed both the shape of English as a school subject and the discourse about the teaching of English in England. The 1960s saw the report as promoting a cultural heritage rooted in outdated social values; the 1970s explored…
