Abstract:

This is one of two volumes by the same editors that explore historical,
philosophical, and cultural perspectives on literacy in China. This volume
focuses on English literacy in China, while the other volume is on Chinese
literacy. In modern day China, English has enjoyed an increasingly important
status in education, but not without challenges. The essays in this volume
provide a comprehensive, cross-disciplinary look at changes in English
literacy practices and literacy instruction in China from the first English
school in the 19th century to recent curriculum reform efforts to modernize
English instruction from basic education through higher education. Together,
the essays address a wide array of topics, including early childhood English
education, uses of information technology to teach English, and teaching
English to Chinese minority students. This work is essential reading for those
who want to expand their understanding of English literacy education in China.
