English Teaching: Practice and Critique

Volume 12, Number 3 (December 2013): Focus: Non-themed issue

Co-editors: Debra Myhill (Graduate School of Education, University of Exeter) and Eileen Honan (University of Queensland, Australia)


The eight papers in this issue contribute to an understanding of collective rather than site-specific understandings of the English teacher. “Taking the pulse” of this teacher, finding out what makes her “tick” through reading across these manuscripts, it is clear that first, the teacher is global, second, the teacher is a teacher of English, and third, that the teacher is concerned with helping her students understand how English lives, and how the study of the language, literature, and literacy practices of English can contribute to our understanding of how our world works, regardless of the site in which the study of English occurs.
