English in Education

English in Education is NATE’s academic journal, designed to keep teachers and academics informed about the most recent research into the teaching of English, and to contribute to national and international debates about the subject. Published by Taylor and Francis, it is one of the leading academic journals in the field, with an international reputation.

English in Education began as NATE Bulletin in 1964, a time of productive collaboration between policy-makers, academics and practitioners. The early issues of English in Education, prompted by the needs of the new comprehensive schools, focused on understanding and nurturing the potential of all pupils, regardless of academic ability or ambition. John Dixon’s seminal book Growth through English (1967) presented a vision of the subject as a humane discipline for personal growth. English in Education has built on this tradition for nearly six decades, providing a forum for research and development in the learning and teaching of English. Most of the issues discussed today are foreshadowed in the journal archive, charting the evolution of key concepts and practices, and their implications for decision-making and classroom practice.
