Imagination Innovation & Creativity

Since its institutionalisation as a school subject in the 1800s, English has been marked by the regular recurrence of often polarised and highly contested debates about what does and what should constitute the subject. At certain periods in its history there has been a significant need for a re-evaluation and a subsequent renaissance in English in Education. The editors and the other contributors to this book are convinced that English is in such a period right now.Particularly in the last decade or so, the field of English in Education - in both primary and secondary schooling - has increasingly come under pressure from a range of forces. Not the least of these has been the ever increasing focus on the necessary, but not sufficient, skills of basic literacy - which has had the unfortunate, but often unintended, consequence of threatening to dilute that imaginative, innovative and creative kaleidoscopic richness which characterises the finest English curriculum, teaching and learning.The writers in this book – from Australia, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and the United States - have been selected from across a spectrum of excellence in research, scholarship, policy-setting, and practical experience in English in Education. They are as one in their determination to reclaim and expand the richness and diversity of the subject English, as they are richly diverse in their own expertise in the field of English in Education. Their essays collectively stress the importance of reconnecting and re-engaging with what teachers love about English: its unique capacity to engage the mind, the spirit and the heart; to stimulate imagination, curiosity and creative capacities through meaningful immersion in the stories of humanity; and to enrich and develop students’ cognitive and affective command and understanding of language in all its expansive dimensions, contexts and purposes view full description
