English Teaching: Practice and Critique
Statement of purpose: English Teaching: Practice and Critique is a peer-reviewed journal aimed at encouraging critical reflective practice and classroom-based research. It seeks to promote theorising about English/literacy that is grounded in a range of contexts: classrooms, schools and wider educational constituencies. It provides a place where authors from a range of backgrounds can identify matters of common concern and thereby foster professional communities and networks. Where possible, it encourages comparative approaches to topics and issues. To this end, each issue deals with a distinct topic or issue. The "Topical Articles" section of the journal is peer-reviewed, and there is also a peer review process for "Classroom Narratives", a section which provides a forum for the stories and concerns of classroom teachers to be aired and shared. In addition, the journal invites "Articles in Dialogue", which may not be on the topic of the issue but can be seen as entering into dialogue with articles in preceding issues. The journal also invites "Review Articles", where reviewers nominated by the Review Editor engage with recently published texts which are deemed to be pertinent to the journal's readership.
The editorial board of English Teaching: Practice and Critique enjoys an active, collaborative relationship with the journal L1: Educational Studies in Language and Literature. Both journals publish in English, and both promote inquiry into language and literacy education, including the role of L-1 education within multilingual settings. Although ETPC tends to focus on the English-speaking world, it is also interested in exploring issues related to language and culture in other settings. A key focus for ETPC is the role English is currently playing in globalization, and the journal welcomes contributions which explore the interface between English and local languages and cultures.
