Abstract:

This book locates dialogic pedagogy within the history of TESOL approaches
and methods in which the communicative approach has been the dominant
paradigm. Dialogic inquiry in the form of story telling, oral histories,
and knowledge from the ground up and from the margins has much to offer the
field. In dialogic approaches, the teacher and students learn in community
and the students' home languages and cultures, their families and
communities, are seen as resources.

"Dialogic Approaches to TESOL: Where the Ginkgo Tree Grows" explores
teacher research, feminist contributions to voice, social identity and
dialogic pedagogy, and the role of teachers, students, families, and
communities as advocates and change agents. After a brief history of TESOL
methods and an introduction to dialogic pedagogy, four features of dialogic
approaches to TESOL are identified and discussed: learning in community,
problem-posing, learning by doing, and who does knowledge serve? The main
text in each chapter considers a single topic related to the concept of
dialogic pedagogy. Branching text leads to related discussions without
losing the main point of the chapter. This structure allows readers to
become well-rooted in each component of dialogic pedagogy and to "branch
out" into deeper philosophic understandings as well as actual practices
across a range of contexts.

"Dialogic Approaches to TESOL" offers a place for dialogue and reflection
on the prospects for transforming educational institutions to serve those
who have historically been excluded and marginalized. It provides
questions, frameworks, and resources for those who are just beginning in
the field and for U.S.-based educators who want to bring critical
multicultural and multilingual perspectives into language arts, reading and
literacy education.
