English language arts: past and future

English language arts: past and future

English education, known also as English Language Arts (ELA), has always been concerned with reflections on the past, understandings of the current and speculations about the future. Texts and contexts that we access and design carry enduring narrative threads of the human condition that link past, present and future. Our interrogation of these intertextual meanings and representations is central in the discursively structured pedagogic spaces of contemporary English classrooms. In this eBook contributors engage with the complex relationships between past present and future for teachers, students, texts and contexts. What endures or should endure? What has changed or needs to change? What are the implications of maintaining or re-visioning our practices and performances? What responsibilities do teachers of a powerful global language have with regard to the other languages spoken in our contexts? What new theoretical imaginings can we operationalise through English teaching?
