Abstract:

"Language, Literacy, and Power in Schooling" brings critical ethnographic
perspectives to bear on language, literacy, and power in culturally and
linguistically diverse contexts, showing how literacy and schooling are
negotiated by children and adults and how schooling becomes a key site of
struggle over whose knowledge, discourses, and literacy practices "count."

Above all, this is a book oriented toward social action. Unpacking the
complexity of literacy practices and experiences in diverse settings, the
authors seek not only to build new knowledge, but to inform and transform
the pedagogies and policies that limit human potentials. The chapters in
this volume have much to teach us about the roots of inequality and the
possibilities for positive change. Together, they highlight the urgent need
for critical literacy researchers to engage politically, confronting
education policies that deny the rich multiplicity of human literacies,
thereby carving ever-deeper cleavages between those with and without access
to literacies of power.

The dual focus on language and literacy with critical-ethnographic accounts
of identity and schooling speaks to a growing constituency of scholars and
practitioners concerned with the role of literacy and discourse in
alternatively affirming or negating knowledge, power, and identity, both
within and outside of schools.

Abstract:

"Understanding Literacy Development: A Global View" brings together leading
experts from around the world to explore ways to best provide teaching and
learning opportunities, tailored to specific educational needs, to help all
children become better readers.

The premise is that current generic "one-size-fits-all" approaches are
inappropriate for many children and can lead to underachievement and
failure. The contributors write from a stance that reflects not only their
own particular expertise and experience, but also sheds light on literacy
development across cultures, countries, and circumstances. Taken together,
the chapters target a wide and comprehensive set of literacy issues, and
offer an extensive exploration of the complexities of literacy development,
including issues related to early literacy, school instruction, family
literacy, adolescent and adult literacy, and teacher development.

This volume is an invaluable tool for scholars, teacher educators,
professionals and graduate students in the fields of literacy education,
early childhood education, educational psychology, educational policy, and
related areas.
