Title: Children's Voices
Subtitle: Talk, Knowledge and Identity
Written By: Janet Maybin
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=268642
Description:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

'It is not often that you are gripped by an academic book. I read Janet
Maybin's book through in almost one reading, gripped by the range of
insights she offers into children's off-record talk, her judicious use of
social and cultural theory, her many new insights into the significance of
styling and voicing emotion and evaluation in everyday dialogue, her
careful building of new ways of talking about and describing talk among
children. This is a highly significant contribution to language in
education, to our understandings of language use and multiple but hitherto
unnoticed aspects of the ways knowledge is constructed. It is a book that
is likely to refocus educational research for many years to come, shifting
the research landscape to the importance of talk outside the classroom for
our understanding of 'official' talk inside the classroom. It is a book
that is written in a lively and engaging style. In fact, it is a book that
is not just gripping; it is genuinely groundbreaking.'
- Ron Carter, Professor of Modern English Language, Nottingham University, UK
