Although Shellshock is a play about war, about both sides of a battle which took place in Turkey 100 years ago, it is not a play that focuses on the battlefield itself with all the sounds and fury of war. Instead, it is a story told in an unexpected way, with characters you might not usually find in a war story….



When a mysterious visitor arrives from Turkey in 2015, young Tom Lindsay, his widowed father, Jack, and grandmother, June, all become embroiled in a drama which had its extraordinary origins at Gallipoli a hundred years before. Justin Fleming's exciting new play is for all people of all ages. It is a gripping story which, by gradual and intriguing revelations, takes us on a thrilling journey to the powerful heart of humanity.

Language and Creativity in Contemporary English Classrooms

¨ What do English teachers understand by the word ‘creativity’?



¨ How does their understanding of creativity differ from the meanings that others ascribe to this word?



¨ What forms does creativity take in their classrooms?



Prompted by Raymond Williams's statement that creativity involves stepping from the 'known into the 'unknown', the contributors to this volume inquire into how their students explore the 'unknown' in a policy environment where everything is mapped out in advance by predetermined learning 'outcomes'. They see their classrooms as spaces for students to engage in imagination, play and learning that exceed the conventional expectations of standardised learning continua. However, rather than supposing that it is possible to transcend those settings, as in old-fashioned notions of creativity or giftedness, the authors carefully trace the ways in which moments of creativity still occur within the heavily regulated environments imposed on them by governments. Creativity, they argue, should be understood as a product of the institutional setting of the school, as something that is facilitated by the social relationships of the classroom, rather than falling back on to assumed binaries of school as a place of regulation and control and creativity as something that can only happen outside the school gates.



History has a privileged place in these essays, which draw on work from a number of key theorists in the history of English curriculum and related areas of the social science, including the work of Raymond Williams.

Investigating Aesop’s Fables is an engaging, stimulating and challenging resource for junior secondary students which will help teachers implement the Australian Curriculum: English in an integrated and thoughtful way.



In the course of this unit of work, students investigate what makes a fable a fable, the relationship between Aesop’s fables and the society in which they were produced and circulated, and the ways in which one particular fable, ‘The Ant and the Grasshopper’, has been told and retold over the years, by writers and visual artists as various as Jean de La Fontaine, Gustave Doré, Walt Disney, Somerset Maugham and John Ciardi. A diverse range of other texts is included, from a World War 1 propaganda poster to a political blog.



Assessment tasks have been constructed to provide clear evidence of students’ achievement of the relevant Standard.
